Your Career is About You from Two Challenges in Building the Career You Deserve [Video Clip]

August 24th, 2015 Comments off

From the Career Opportunities Podcast…

A Clip from Two Challenges in Building the Career You Deserve with Douglas E. Welch. Watch the entire presentation.

Your Career is About You from Two Challenges in Building the Career You Deserve [Video Clip]

 

Douglas E. Welch (http://douglasewelch.com) presents to the class Career Development – Theories and Techniques at Pepperdine Graduate School of Education & Psychology taught by fellow CareerCamp Co-Chair, Danielle Gruen

The two biggest challenges are deciding what you want to do as a career and then building the career you deserve once you decide.

I discuss the Career Compass method of discovering your career wants, needs and desires and then using various social media tools to show people “What you do and how well you do it”

Transcript:

It’s not about those external things out there. Although, yes, we focus on resumes and we focus on interview skills and everything else, in reality it’s about you. It’s about the people you deal with and it’s about developing, as Danielle said, “The Career You Deserve” and I really do believe that. That became the subtitle for my column and podcast and I really do believe that. We all deserve a great career. We’re not entitled to it. It doesn’t mean that I get it because I’m a happy little special snowflake. It means that all of us, collectively as humans, deserve a great career and we can make that happen — and we can help others make that happen — if we think about it in this very personal way.

Transcript:

Transition — and this throws people off a little bit when I say this, but — transition is a force for goo din our lives and in our careers and many of us do not see it that way. We are fearful of it. It is the sabertooth cat outside the cave door. When I last gave this talk, off the top of my head I came up with a metaphor — “Don’t think of it as the sabertooth cat outside the cave door. Think about it as a domesticated cat keeping the rats out of your cave and sitting by your side and keeping you warm.” It is a good factor in our lives. It brings wonderful, new things, into our lives and our careers that we need to thrive as human beings. If you become too scared of it and avoid it at all costs, I think, personally, that you are limiting your lives.

We use  service called Eventbrite (eventbrite.com) — and I have some links at the end that I’ll show you — for tickets. If your event is free Eventbrite tickets are free. You set up a little page on their web site. You can do all sorts of ticketing things — we basically have 1 ticket — I’m an attendee. But you can gather information from the attendees. You can send them automatically, e-tickets — they’re PDF documents that they can either show on their phone and/or print out. We can then read them with our smartphones and say ‘Attended” so we actually know they — not that they just signed up — but that they actually came. It’s a big operation. It’s like a theater operation ticketing system, usable for free if your event is free.  


What is CareerCamp and Career Camp International?

CareerCamp is a community organized, career-focused, unconference which calls upon local communities and people to share their knowledge, expertise and other important information on developing yourself and your career.

What is an unconference?

Unconferences are self-organizing conferences, similar to many professional conferences, but instead of hiring well-known, professional speakers, they call on the attendees themselves to provide the content and focus for the event. Every person who attends is highly encouraged to present on some topic deeply important to them or, barring that, to facilitate an open breakout session or round table discussion or even just to engage and converse with their fellow attendees between presentations. A few organizers band together to find a venue for the event, recruit sponsors and invite attendees, but the focus of the unconference is driven solely by the attendees.

Some might question the usefulness of presentations by their peers, but we have found that there is an enormous amount of real-world expertise available in each and every local community. CareerCamp utilizes a format that draws out that expertise and benefits everyone. CareerCamp (and other unconferences) provide a structure and an opportunity to share this expertise in ways that traditional conferences do not. Additionally, CareerCamps also attract career development professionals who can use CareerCamp as a way of introducing themselves to a new audience of potential clients.

How was CareerCamp developed?

The genesis of CareerCamp was found by attending BarCamp unconferences held around the world. CareerCamp founder, Douglas E. Welch, was a long time attendee of BarCamp, which is an event that embraces any topic, although it often leans toward technology. After seeing the success of BarCamp as a way to illuminate and educate within a community, Welch applied the unconference concept to the specific world of Career Development.

Transcript:

Now, the reason we always seek out stability is, of course, that big “F” word and I’m not talking about that “F” word — stop it — Although, we often say it with the same intonation in our voice and can anyone guess what that “F” word is? (Audience: Fail, Fear”) Fear. Fail’s a good one too though. Fear. Fear is a very human instinct. We have an innate “fight or flight” response to fear. Do I need to stand and put up my fists or do I run. There’s the great joke about the two guys hiking in the woods and they come across a bear and the bear starts to growl and one friend quickly reaches into his backpack and puts on his running shoes and the other friend is like “What are you doing? You can’t outrun the bear.” Then the other guy says, ” I don’t need to outrun the bear. I just need to outrun you!” (Laughter) Ok. Fear is a strong motivator in our lives. You might be thinking, especially those among you who are recent layoffs, “I can’t be in transition forever or I will go crazy.” And I’m here to tell you, you will be in transition forever, but you won’t go crazy. If you approach transition as something that is normal — as something that is useful in your life — you eon’t go crazy. Yes, it will be scary. Yes, it will be a little bit annoying — having been through layoffs myself and job transitions of all sorts, but it will not kill you and it will not drive you crazy.
