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:

The trouble with not knowing what you want to do for a career is that there are just too many options. I am faced with that every day. I am an autodidact – a self-teacher. I never wanted to go back, like you guys, and go back to school or continue on with school. I got my Bachelor’s degree, I went into the work force. That doesn’t mean I stopped learning. In fact, I think I’ve learned more since I left college, definitely — and more deeply — than I ever learned in college. The reason I’m that way is because I love options. I love variety. I drive my wide mad. I’m always like “Well, I don’t want the same thing for dinner week after week after week.” I have, well, “what haven’t we had in a while?” I have lists — “What have we had over the last several weeks so we’re not repeating anything that often?” I don’t like to go to the same places all the time. I don’t like to see the same movies all the time. I’m not one to go back and re-watch movies. I love variety. And what that means is, I’m often pulled down the rabbit hole of very interesting topics that may have nothing to do with anything else in my life. A few years ago, it was beekeeping. And I never quite know where I’m going to go, but I always find that I find something unique that applies to the whole rest of my life at the end of that experience. It’s in the act of learning — and researching these options — I think, that we find the power in our career. And I highly recommend people take some time to pursue those things that — maybe it is isn’t on-track with your accounting degree and accounting career — follow it anyway, because I can almost guarantee you’re going to find something that’s going to effect the work you do everywhere else. It’s can’t, not — to use a double-negative. There is no way that it cannot effect everything else you do in life, because it’s all connected.
