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:

If you’e ever flown an airplane — of you’ve ever piloted a boat — you’ll know that you have your bearing on your chart that says I want to go there, but you also know, especially in an airplane which is three dimensional, you’re never on that bearing. Wind is pushing you around. Waves are pushing you around. You may have to go around obstacles. You’re constantly correcting that course and it’s in that correction that the concept of a compass came to me. I thought, “Oh, you have to have that bearing. You have to know where you want to head,” because truth be told, as we all know, reality has a way of rearing its ugly head and you can never go directly where you want to go. You can’t become the CEO of that Fortune 500 company overnight. You’re going to have to plot a course to that position. And that’s what it’s like. You’ll constantly be moving from job to job from opportunity to opportunity and correcting your course, but if you don’t know where you’re going, you’re never going to get there.

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:

Do you like to work with people? What age of people? Do you like to work with kids? Do you like to work with people your same age? Do you like to work with older people? Where do you want to work? Geographically? Do you want to work in LA? Do you want to work somewhere up in the mountains in Denver, Colorado? You want to work in the Plains. You want live on a South Sea island somewhere and WiFi your work in wherever it needs to be. Think at much lower level about what you enjoy? Do you enjoy music? What type of music? Do you… start to list all these things, because it’s in those ideas, those wants, needs and desires — I call them — that, for me, the key to career exists.

So after that big laundry list of stuff I had him write out, it came to me that there is a way then, that we had to classify what he wrote in some way. Right? You have to figure out, for each item he wrote down, where — is it a good thing or a bad thing? Is it a want or is it not? And that’s where the idea of the compass came up.

Transcript:

What this little drawing is here — this is my — I feel like I should do a little trademark — this is my Career Compass. Just a thought that came to me one day when I was trying to help a co-worker decide what to do. They were really, really, really stuck and quite upset. They didn’t — they were in a situation where they didn’t know what to do in their career. They were running a small business and they realized that they either needed to come up with a new small business or do something else entirely. So, I said to them, “Do this for me. Write down everything you like to do and everything you don’t like to do.” This is before I came up with the idea for a compass. “Just write down everything and don’t think about  I like to do — I want to work for this company or I want to do this type of job. Go down personally.”

Transcript:

Now this also helps you to say no to the wrong opportunities when they come up. Because that’s another big thing. You’ve heard today, I’m sure, about the power in saying no. You have to “know” when to say “no” to things. Because they may not be a good fit for you. They may be a good fit for somebody else. They may be a good fit for your coworker. They may be a good fit for your company, but they may not be a good fit for you and you need the power and the intelligence and the thinking to say no to those opportunities. The fact is, there are too many people out there today who will gladly tell you what to do with your career. Your spouse will gladly tell you what to do with your career. Your children will gladly tell you. Your co-workers. Your boss. Everyone — if you don’t decide what to do in your career, there are a million people out there — everyone from your boss to the guy to talk to at the bus stop — will gladly tell you what you should be doing — including me. Which is why I say to take what I say as a grain of salt and try to apply what I say to you, don’t think of it as some directive that says you MUST do this.

Transcript:

One of the big problems is that you have too many options these days. We get that analysis paralysis that starts to set it. You go to — you go to the store and there’s 15 types of ketchup! Which one do I buy? They’ve actually done tests — they’ve done market studies that siad, if you offer 15 to 20 types of ketchups, people will not buy. If you offer 4 types of ketchup, they will buy, because they just get stuck in that paralysis of trying to figure out what’s the best choice. The term you hear today — fear of missing out — how many people have heard — right? That’s the big term today FOMO. People don’t do things — they actually don’t do things because they can’t decide what to do because they’re afraid of missing out on something else. So I, again, bring it back to the person, I say “What are you interesting in?”
