Everything you do MUST have value to others from the Career Opportunities Podcast 

Career Opportunities Logo 2012

From the Career Opportunities Archives…

There comes a time, maybe many times, when you can’t understand what other people are thinking. You are putting out energy, attention, physical labor, — as Churchill once said, “blood, sweat, toil and tears” — and yet no one seems to care. You think your story, your cause, your writing, your work, your business is the most important thing in the world and all you get in return is silence.

It’s easy to come up with a hundred reasons why no one cares. “They’re stupid.”, “They’re evil.”, “They’re Republican.”, “They’re Democrat.”, “They’re rich, poor, black, white purple, speak another language. It’s the economy, the government, the world, the flux, the weather, the tides.” We can come up with thousands of reason why our work and our lives aren’t fully appreciated. We do this out of self-preservation. If we allow ourselves to think of the “real” reason no one is paying attention, it might break our hearts.

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

 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.

If you can find a way of combining interests like this — where they come together — that’s the energy in your life, because having a job that expresses one interest of you life is great.

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.

Transcript:

Transition is a force for good in our lives, not evil and I think so many of us see it the opposite way. We see change as scary and frightening and bad and we seek to avoid it at all costs. Please don’t do that. It is these changes that arise that — like the Troy-Bilt opportunity I mentioned before — bring amazing opportunities into your life and much like the Compass, if you start to draw — how many people remember Venn Diagrams from their math class, right?– Union, Intersection, and all that stuff – if you start drawing the interests in your life and where they connect — soi say this is gardening. This is technology. This is writing. It’s where these interests bang up against each other that all the great stuff happens.

Someone is going to stumble across it. Someone is going to send you a question about it. Someone’s going to email you about it. Someone else is going to think “Hey, that’s pretty cool.” “I Built this robot that does that.” I guarantee you that if you do something like that people will come out of the woodwork. ‘”Oh that’s so cool. Have you thought about doing this and this to it or …?” Is has always amazed me the type of response you get from people.

Transcript:

We want to — to go back to our being on course metaphor — you want to roll with the waves of transition, ok. If you’re constantly fighting, you’re going to get swamped. The wave is going come over you and you’re going to be wiped out. Don’t be capsized. Don’t be drowned by the waves of change. Ride on top. Be that cork. Be that bobber, if you’re a fisherman. Be that bobber and ride on top of it by engaging in it. If you simply stand there at the shoreline and let the waves smack into you that’s self-defeating. If you ride with the waves — you dive into the waves — it’s simply going to be easier on you and you’re going to benefit much more from that.

Transcript:

If you have to explain a concept to somebody else it makes it easier for you to remember and understand it, because if you start asking yourself questions — you’re trying to explain it to someone who knows nothing about it or is struggling with it — and you have to go, “Why is it that way? What– oh–hold on” and you have to figure it out and then you can explain it to them, but it very quickly exposes the limits of your knowledge and things and so you can’t help but learn things more deeply, apply them in a better and help those around you. So, I highly encourage you to take your thinking. Take your thoughts. Take your — the neat things that you do. Whether company-based or personal-based — it does not matter — and start talking about them online. Please because the big thing that’s going to do and everything else I’m going to talk about is going to do — it’s going to start attracting opportunities to you.
