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:

One of the things I learned when I started podcasting was — I figured when I started podcasting — I did an audio podcast of my weekly career column that I had been writing for several years — and I figured, “Oh this is just another way for those readers to consume the column, right?” No. This audience let’s say was probably — I’m going to say — a fourth crossed over with that audience and I would say that is a good number for all these. Yes, there’ll be people who follow you in both places, but the majority of the people who follow you on Twitter will not be the people who follow you on Facebook and they won’t be the people following you on LinkedIn and they won’t be the people who follow you on Tumblr. It’s a separate audience, So each one of these that you use to expose your work and “What you do and how well you do it” actually gets you another audience.

Take a look at your earnings…in cash from the Career Opportunities Podcast

July 17th, 2017 No comments

 Take a look at your earnings…in cash from the Career Opportunities Podcast

Career Opportunities Logo 2012

From the Career Opportunities Archives…

Here is an exercise for you all. It may sound odd, but I think it will open your mind to some aspects of your career that have been long ignored. This week, if you are working and receiving a paycheck, don’t just deposit it in the bank. I want you to see it in cold, hard cash. I want you to hold the fruits of your labors in your hands. I want you to look at it, touch it, smell it. You can put it all back in the bank when you are done, but for one week out of the year I want you to take a look at your earnings and what they mean to you, your family and your life.

Despite the convenience of modern forms of payment, there is something to be said for the days when you lined up at the paymasters desk and received cash payment directly into your hand. As we have found with other forms of our digital lifestyles there is still the need for interaction with the physical world. We can talk with friends online for hours, but still want to go down to the pub for pint now and then. We can read endless articles online, but still find joy in curling up with good book. We can look at albums of pictures from around the world, but still need to travel to see it for ourselves, touch the sand and see the sights.

Transcript:

The next step…once you’ve got your blog up and running…is sharing, beyond your blog, what you do. Now, how many people use Facebook? How many people use Facebook effectively? I struggle with this every day. Facebook right now — and these items from here on in could change — they could change by the time I get home tonight, but these are the things that are kind of attracting attention right now. Facebook has not been that useful to me over the years, but recently — through a connection of friends and the way they’re doing stuff on the site — it has actually become on of my foremost interaction points beyond my blog itself. It was Twitter for the longest time, but Twitter’s not quite sure what it is anymore, but it’s still useful. I still use Twitter. If you follow me you’ll see what I post there.

Transcript:

You want to be in someone’s mind — companies sit around saying, “Oh geez, our accountant’s leaving — our CFO is leaving — who do we know that — who do we know? Does anyone know any CFOs and CPAs that want — Oh, how about Bob?” That’s where those jobs are coming from. Long before it ever gets listed. Long before it ever gets bantered around even the internal circles the people inside that company go, “Who do we know?” and that doesn’t necessarily need to be a hard contact like “I know Bob. We have lunch every week or play golf or whatever reason like that. It can be a casual contact. “You know I’ve been reading this guys blog about this and he’s here locally. We should talk to him about this.” You never know.

The One Thing You Need To Do To Become More Creative via Fast Company

The One Thing You Need To Do To Become More Creative via Fast Company

If you want to become more creative, the answer may lie in becoming more courageous. A new class at USC Annenberg called Improvisational Leadership is encouraging students to step outside of their comfort zones and explore new experiences.

“Students fear finding the perfect job the day they graduate,” says Fred Cook, director of the USC Center for Public Relations and professor of professional practice. “They’re under pressure to perform because of student loans and their parents. They’ve taken the classes and done the internships, but they’re often short on life experience.”
