A Deeper Interest in Your Work from Using the Career Compass to Find Your Work and Career [Video] (0:46)

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

A Deeper Interest in Your Work from Using the Career Compass to Find Your Work and Career

 

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:

So I try to shake things up a little bit — bust things up a little bit — and also, through things I have discovered in my own career — everything I’m going to talk about is because I’ve gone through it and I’ve learned from it. I try to tease them through the process into a new way of saying “Let’s not think about the externals of your career — about the boss, the company, the resumes, whatever — let’s talk about what you really want.” Because I firmly believe, you can do OK work at a job you don’t really love. You might even do good work on occasion. For me, though, you’re never, ever going to do great work unless you have some deeper interest in what you’re doing.

No one cares about your career as much as you from Transition is the New Normal 2016

Transcript:

Everyone else too much worried about their own life and their own career. And again, they can help you, but they will never care as much about it and when you give power to them well, you’re reducing the effect your going to have in the world because you’ve given power to someone who really isn’t as committed as you are. What’s the joke about breakfast? In breakfast, the egg is interested and the pig is committed. The bacon is committed right? So, you have to realize that and again, take control of your own life. if you don’t manage you’re own life and career, there are plenty of people who will gladly do it for you. Your spouse will do it for you. Your family will do it for you. Your children will do it for you. Your boss will do it for you. Whatever. Your career consultant will do it for you. People love to control other people’s lives. Just like they like spending other people’s money. Which I enjoy quite a bit.

Transcript:

But that was about the last — our parent’s generation was about the last generation where the whole “gold watch and a handshake” at the end of your 30 years at a company retirement was even a possibility. Ever since then that’s become more and more of a joke that that’s just not the way life works, but many of us — many of the people you will deal with — still have that in their head. Especially people who — my age — who are transitioning between jobs. I just spoke to and OPEN group out in Simi Valley — I speak out there, it’s like this is my yearly thing — I speak here and I speak there in March every year. And, in those people, still in the back of their mind they can keep that idea of how a career is supposed to work in a world that no longer understands that idea of a career. And that’s very dangerous for someone, anyone, to have a conceit like that stuck in their head because it’s not going to allow them to make the best decisions about their career and about their lives even.

Engage with Transition from Transition is the New Normal 2016 with Douglas E. Welch [Audio] (1:01)

Transcript:

Another important fact is that you have to engage with transition. Too many people put up their hands and go, “Oh my god, I can’t…” and they crawl into their little hole and they pull in the dirt after them. “I don’t want to deal with it. Life is too much. Life is too crazy. Life changes too much.”

But, if you ignore transition — or try to ignore it, because you can’t really ignore it — if you try to ignore it, you suddenly take all your power over your life, your career, whatever, and go “Ah, somebody else. You take care of it.” You give up all that power. You give all that power to the person interviewing you. You give all that power to the EDD. You give all that power to somebody else and eventually you find out that that doesn’t work, because no one else can care as much about your career or your life as you do. it is simply impossible. We call be altruistic. We can all help others. We can give to charity. We can do these things, but when it comes down to it, only we can care about our lives as much as anybody else.

Transcript:

Now, for me, there are two basic challenges of having a career these days. And they’re kind of at different ends of the spectrum and I’m going to touch on both of them today. The two challenges that I see in any career are, first of all, figuring out what you want to do and especially in this day and age — myself being a perfect example — people ask me, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” I never figured out he answer to that question. I just tried to to do what I found most interesting and most useful in the world and have developed a career around that. The other challenge is, once you’ve decide what you want to do for a career, which, by the way, that will change over time, inevitably, but once your figure out basically what you want to do — how do you build that career? How do you go from this good job to that better job to this great job to an entrepreneurship to whatever you want to do? How do you move through those stages in a way that is different from the world our parents grew up with.

Transcript:

I’m right there with you. I am one of the worst. I have a pessimistic leaning personality rather than an optimistic leaning. So it’s very easy for me to go down that hill, but I’ve learned over the years to tell myself and just stop and say, “You know what? No. Look at everything you’ve done in the past. There is something new coming.” You’re going to have to find it. You’re going to have to work hard to find it. it’s not, also, that things are simply presented to you. Whether you’re working in a job or whether you’re unemployed or whether you’re seeking a job, you still have to work hard at it and I think that’s true of life in general. When you’re raising a child everyday you’ve got to work hard at it. It never really gets easier and I think that’s a good corollary to life in general. There’s always new challenges. And you’ll hav a good day and you’ll have a bad day, but it’s always a challenge. And you have to work very hard at it. Some thing goes for your career. Same thing goes for your whole life.
