Using the Career Compass to Find Your Work and Career with Douglas E. Welch 

More On Taking Credit For Your Work from Using the Career Compass To Find Your Work and Career

Listen to this clip

 

Read the book

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:

…and I learned that from an art teacher I had at Walt Disney Imagineering. We were lucky enough – even though I was in IT — we got to go to art coaching nights if we wanted and I took great advantage of that. I’m an amateur watercolor painter mainly because I got to work with my art coach, Ron and one of the first things Rosa said — we’d be working away and doing little stuff in the coaching session — and he’d say, yeah, that’s finished. Sign it. Because when you sign it you take ownership. You become proud of that and you will do better work after that point because you have taken control and pride in that work and I say, and I know it sounds a little weird in the career world “Sign the darn thing!” Make sure your name is on there somewhere and you can get away from anybody thinks you’re just being boastful or whatever by saying “If you have any questions. Contact me.” You’re doing it in a helpful way that says “Hey. I’m here to help.” It also gets your name in front of their face — also very helpful, but you can couch it a little bit in that.

Transcript:

Another important concept of all these things is to be proud of your work. I sort of took this to heart in the corporate world where reports would get made. Reports would get sent up the chain and questions would get asked. Your boss would come back to you with the questions and your answers would get filtered back up through the chain of command. I made a point — after about my second year at Disney — that if I did anything — if I did a report if I did a spreadsheet — if I did help with a project. You know what I did? I signed them. There’d be somewhere in that program, that spreadsheet, that document that said — “By the way, if you have any questions, talk to Dog. He’s the one that did it.” Because otherwise, you are an anonymous cog in a corporation. You don’t exist. Some cobbler’s elves down in the basement put together that report. You’re not doing it to be boastful. You’re not doing it to show off. You’re simply — like any artist — signing your work.

…and I have people find talks years later. They’ll write me very, very heartfelt notes and say “Oh my gosh! I just stumbled across this now. This is great and exactly what I needed to hear.” I say, “Ok.” That reinforces the reason I do these things and also enforces the reason I tell people things because I have seen it work in people’s favor. Because, again, you want to be first in people’s minds when they have a need. Regardless of what that need may be. It can be any specialty, as I said. You can be a plumber, a cook, a chef, whatever. It does not matter. If someone wants to learn how to cook coq au vin. Ok. You go to Google or YouTube and type coq au vin — coq au vin recipe and you’ll find just as many videos that people making coq au vin as you will find recipes listing it out in text. It can be very very useful to you.

Transcript:

Another really big one right now — I won’t say it’s very good for income anymore, but as ways of telling people what you do and how well you do it — YouTube. When I talk about new media I talk about the levels of intimacy of various media. A written book can be very intimate. We can cry at the end of Harry Potter ok, and it can really hit us with the feelings, but audio is another level of intimacy. I often describe it as an audio podcast is literally whispering in the people’s ears. If you think about how the people walk around their ear buds in you’re, literally whispering in people’s ears. A much higher level of intimacy and of course, when you get to video, you’re now at the level of intimacy falling just short of being there in person. Because they get much more physical cues from you in a video. They see your face. They see your gestures. It is the reason that you see I set up my camera and my mic tonight. I record everything I do because it all goes on YouTube. That’s where I can send people to.

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.
