逃離「安穩」的束縛

freelance

告別壓抑的朝九晚六,我成為了自由工作者。

畢業前的理想規劃是,找一份穩定工作,每年升職加薪,平步青雲。現實卻是上班下班,營營役役,刻板沈悶。若換過幾次工作,還得招架親友們的冷嘲熱諷,「份份工都做唔長」。

大概不少人都跟我一樣,曾被這種無力感折磨著。

為什麼對工作總燃不起熱情呢?任職於一個大家都夢寐以求的崗位,還有什麼好抱怨呢?我努力尋找答案,到最後,我辭職了。因為令我沮喪的,其實不是工作,而是工作模式。長久以來,我都被「安穩」的魔咒束縛著。

所謂穩定工作,對我來說,雖然定期支薪,卻犧牲了所有其他可能性,明明不適合,卻害怕轉工,害怕動搖到安穩的生活。直到一天醒來,我問自己,如果工作的最根本是賺錢維生,一份長工,跟兩份兼職,還有三份散工,有分別嘛?但對我的生活,卻有翻天覆地的改變。

我開始了一連串快樂的新嘗試,即使偶然會遇上挫折,但每天還是充滿新鮮感,重新找回了生活的感覺。其中一個很實在的體驗是,近年突然喜歡上喝咖啡,以往錯過了很多機會,辭職後在找散工的apps,看到有CAFÉ招聘兼職咖啡師學徒,便立即應徵,現在總算能好好控制那部咖啡機。

更令我振奮的是,我發現原來做「全職散工」也不是想像中那麼「朝不保夕」,市場上有不少臨時和兼職職位空缺,白天也好,晚上也好,在不同的CAFÉ和餐館工作學習 ,也是十分寶貴的體驗,連每天於不同時間上班,也是一種樂趣。

雖然同時兼任幾份工作,工作時間或比以前更長,收入也可能會有暫時性的影響,然而這份自由的感覺是從前所沒有的。我相信這些「炒散」的經驗,能給我帶來一個更美好的前景,相比從前的朝九晚六,才真的令我身心俱疲。

逃離了「安穩」的牢獄,我感覺未來充滿了可能性。

Local HR Tech Startups Disrupting Hong Kong’s Talent Acquisition Market

JOBDOH interviewed alongside another disriptive HR startup founder, Max Armbruster from Talkpush, sharing why and how we are transforming the traditional HR recruitment industry.

Who we are: JOBDOH is an award winning smart-hiring platform that connects employers with on-demand and temporary workers quickly. Featured by major press and media such as CNBC, we reduce the inefficiency of searching and matching candidates. Our platform is 95X faster than the market average in fulfilling jobs, setting a record from job posting to arrival to under 75 minutes. While our proprietary algorithm enables clients to receive the most suitable candidates, candidates benefit from an increased flexibility to earn extra income quickly as well as an improved upward mobility through the transparent record keeping system.

Whether you represent an international business on short assignments in Asia or you already have an established business here, JOBDOH is your optimal staffing solution.

Why we exist: “I created the company to transform the way people work and live. By using data to make the temporary staffing process more efficient and effective, both employers and candidates get faster, better results, and more flexible arrangements.” - Founder and CEO Xania Wong
