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:

Share what you know. Whether you are sharing it online.You’re sharing it in person. Teach everyone around who wants to learn. If you have someone asking you a question, take that question seriously and answer that question. They came to you asking, looking for an answer and your answer may be imperfect or at least you may think it’s a bit imperfect in some ways, but you guess what? Together you’re going to arrive at a good answer, but never ever slough off a question when it is asked of you, because if that person took the time — took the energy — took the personal fear to ask you a question, they want to know the answer. ANd the fact is, if they want to know that answer, I can guarantee you — times it by 10, times it by 100, times it by 1000 in the era of the Internet — other people out there want to know that same answer.

Transcript:

There is no longer a reason these days not to have your own “reel” as they call it and that “reel” doesn’t just apply to the entertainment industry, ok, it applies to everything that we do. You need that reel. You need those things, those interesting things to show people. Go out there and start doing it. Take something that really interests you and start doing it. then you’re going to generate interesting stuff that you can share out there and start to share them with people and hopefully start to attach and start to bring that opportunity to you. Again, you just want to have people say “Hey, have you heard about “ummmph”? “I know someone who does “blah.” You never know where that’s going to lead. You really don’t.

Look to the fringe for the next step in your career from the Career Opportunities Podcast [Audio]

Look to the fringe for the next step in your career from the Career Opportunities Podcast

Career Opportunities Logo 2012

From the Career Opportunities Archives…

 As many of you know already, when looking for your first job, your next job or the next step in your career, a direct, frontal attack is only one approach. Sure answering job postings, submitting resumes and taking interviews will always be with us, but I believe they can only take us so far. In a good hiring environment, these methods are fairly productive, but in harsh job hunting environment, such as the one we have now, they can leave us frustrated and morose. Silence is often the only response to resumes and applications these days. If your job search is stalled, it is time to take things to a new level — and in a new direction. It is time to look to the fringes, away from everyone else, and see what they might have to offer. You shouldn’t stop your traditional job search, but you need to start trying some more innovative approaches to finding a job.

Don’t just try the same old things in your job search from the Career Opportunities Podcast

Career Opportunities Logo 2012

From the Career Opportunities Archives…

 

Last Saturday marked our second CareerCamp event here in the Southern California area. By many accounts, it was extremely successful, both in terms of attendance and the amount of information that was shared. That said, there were a couple of people who arrived that day looking for a more traditional “career fair” where they could submit their resumes directly to companies that might have openings. One person even stated the typical, and extremely important phrase, “I need to get a job NOW!”

While our CareerCamp events are dedicated more to “Building the Career You Deserve” rather than hard job leads, I wish I would have had the opportunity to talk to this person. Career fairs are indeed important, in their own way, but we can all become too dependent on any one method for finding our next job.

Podcasting is interesting. I was one of the first 20 podcasters back in 2004 because I had content. I was had already been writing my career column for a long time and I had some audio equipment so I was able to start literally within 2 weeks of the term being coined. Nowadays, podcasting has sort of been infiltrated by the big boys but that doesn’t mean you can’t use it to your own advantage. When I’m talking with voice over people or actors or someone like that, one of the hardest things to do when acting is to get known. Is to have work. To show people. You know you do showcases or you do open mic nights or you this and the other and I tell them, “You know what? You have a great new tool at your advantage here. YouTube and Podcasting. Do your own shows. Do your own shows. Do your own web shows. Do your own comedy half hour. Do whatever you do. Do you own voiceover work. Find an animator who’s looking for voices for their animation and do voice over for their animation

It’s the small things that get you noticed from the Career Opportunities Podcast [Audio]

It’s the small things that get you noticed from the Career Opportunities Podcast

Career Opportunities Logo 2012

From the Career Opportunities Archives…

 

Over the course of my career I have had the blessed opportunity to receive some pretty high praise. Sure, I have made my mistakes and had my failures, but when I succeed my clients can be quite effusive in their compliments. One thing I have noticed, though, is that the highest praise often doesn’t come at the completion of some large project. Rather, people are happiest when I provide a small solution at a critical moment. Having the small answer at the right time can be much more important to people than having the answers to the big questions.

received a call the other day from a friend/client. She was in the middle of a photo shoot and her camera would not stop recording, nor turn off. With several more hours of work to do, she was under a lot of pressure so she reached out to me in hopes I might have a quick solution. Sure enough, holding down the power button on the camera forced it to restart and she was back to work in minutes. You can probably imagine how happy she was with this solution. This is when it struck me that the right answer at the right time can be quite powerful.

Someone has to do that job…or not from the Career Opportunities Podcast

Someone has to do that job…or not from the Career Opportunities Podcast

Career Opportunities Logo 2012

From the Career Opportunities Archives…

When pressed, we can come up with a hundred and one reasons why we stay in a lousy job. “The economy is bad. There aren’t any jobs available. I’m not cut out for anything else.” For me, though, the worst excuse, by far is “Well, someone has to do the job.” To this I reply, “someone may have to do the job, but it doesn’t have to be you.”

Let me be very clear that I am not talking about all the unpleasant, but extremely necessary work out there like garbage collection, sewer maintenance or animal control. Even in these unpleasant activities, workers can find high levels of job satisfaction along with equally high salaries. This is exactly how it should be with all unpleasant, but high necessity jobs.

The jobs I am talking about are the one’s with the abusive boss — the one’s with low salaries and no raises – the one’s that make your life worse, instead of better. These jobs suck the life out of you and, in some cases, everyone you work with. They deaden you to your own skills and capabilities. They use you up, discard the husk and replace you with yet another cog in the machine.
