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:

You job is to communicate with people that have a common interest, both personally and in their career. You may become an acquaintance of someone who is interested in music with you and, all of a sudden, you’ll discover, oh but they actually also work at this charity that does whatever that you’re also interested in. You never can tell. You can never tell where your next career opportunity is coming from, too. That’s a really importance phrase to get out there. Your next job could just as easily come from someone sitting next to you at Starbucks or someone on your Facebook account then it could from an actual job listing or job description or job posting. And, in fact, I would say that these days, the chances of getting a good job are actually higher online and face-to-face at the Starbucks then they are looking through the want ads or Monster.com or any of those things.

Transcript:

And sometimes the decision is no. I’m going to have to do this for now. If you do feel like you’re in a situation that is really intractable, what I recommend is — fine, deal with that the best you can — but make sure, for your own self-interest, to have something else that makes you happy. My wife, many years ago, we moved to Los Angeles 29 years ago, for my wife to be a television writer. And she started working in the industry as a writer’s assistant — because that’s where you learn how to do all the TV writing stuff and someone told her — she got an agent eventually — and someone told her, “It’ll take you 10 years to get a career. Ten years to really get your first staff position. You’re first full time job writing on television.” And she was just knocked back — “Ten Years!? I can’t wait 10 years! That’ll be forever.” And I said to her, just out of the blue, for whatever reason — I have some good thoughts on occasion — I said to her, ” You need something to give you validation while  you’re struggling with this very, very, difficult thing you are trying to do.” Because television writing is a really tough world to live in. And it does take a long time to establish yourself. She’s a writer, always has been a writer, and I said, “Why don’t you write some magazine articles? Why don’t you write for the LA Times?” We both had Op-Ed’s in the LA Times in the past when they had a Valley Edition, years ago. Those were our little ways of getting that little hit of “Ooo, I did something good. I got something printed. I — this is good — you get a little food feeling about yourself while you’re slogging through the mud of this other issue that perhaps doesn’t have a solution right now. Eventually, she got an agent. She got a couple of freelance scripts. She got a staff job and away she went. So, it did eventually happen, but I really feel you have to have something — even if its only a hobby — but something that gives you a sense of satisfaction totally divorced from the harder issue. Because, if you simply wallow in that harder issue, it will will bury you. it will just eat you up.

Transcript:

Now, it is easy for your to share what you do and how well you do it. That can just as easily mean what you’re interested in. What you’re excited about. What you’re angry about. What you’re interested in sharing with other people. I know people male a lot of the whole things — (Dopey voice) “Well who wants to see what I had for lunch today?” You don’t have to- then don’t post that. If that’s not what you want to see on Facebook, don’t post that on Facebook. Post what interests you andy you will find people who will find that interesting because they will have a similar interest to you. Just because people use social media for silly and stupid stuff, doesn’t mean you can’t use it for cool and neat and interesting stuff that builds your career. I really want to reinforce that. Yes, there are jerks everywhere. You walk out of this building and there are jerks. There’s going to be jerks on the Internet. Don’t follow them. Don’t engage with them. Do want you want to do. Do what has the most value for you. You will get value back for it. I guarantee you.

Transcript:

And, so I — often to my own detriment — will avoid conflict until it gets to a point where I simply can’t avoid it any longer. And then it’s always worse, because then all the emotion has built up and then it just explodes out. I’m one of those quiet guys who will take a lot of abuse and all of a sudden just BWAHH at someone. “Why are you so upset?” “Well, because you didn’t see the last 3 months when I’ve been upset, you know, because I didn’t say anything about it. Partially my fault as well. Definitely comes down to that. A lot of what we suffer through in our lives comes from the fact of not making decisions.

Transcript:

Last year, podcasting has exploded — with The Serial podcast and all these other — for whatever reason it has suddenly hit its moment. And so, I am recommending to people — if you have and interest in that — if you have have an interest either an audio podcast or a video podcast. Most of my gardening podcasts are video podcasts, which I also post to YouTube and elsewhere. If you have an interest in that, pursue it. It’s not as scary as it once was and it’s not as technically fraught as it once was. Literally, with your phone now, there’s the YouTube Capture app. I can send — record a video and post it to YouTube directly from my phone. Last week, as South by Southwest, and app came out called Meerkat which is basically, bring it up, click this, click that, I’m live streaming right now. Boom. And we’re live streaming on the Internet. It automatically got tweeted out and people can start to watch right now.
