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

The Southeast: Your Dislikes 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:

Sometimes I’ll take the computer to the wilderness park down on Kanan Dume and sit in the woods and writing on the computer. I know it sounds weird, but that’s a perfect combination for me of that high-tech and high-touch elements.

What’s something that you guys don’t like? What would you put down here in this column? This quadrant? Math? Math is a big one. I have a great book to refer you to. There is a guy named Art Benjamin who does “Mathemagic” and he has the Art of Mental Math – The Secret of Mental Math, I think is his latest book. It helped me get over my math phobia a bit. But definitely a big one. Public Speaking. How many people — these days, I don’t know how you survive if you have a fear of public speaking these days. Some people don’t like getting up and presenting in front of people. Then don’t have a job that requires you to give presentations day in and day out. You will absolutely hate it, right? But if you never thought about that maybe you didn’t put it down there.

Transcript:

Again, you have to decide for yourself, though — what your interests are and where they lie. So, gain, these are things you are doing today that you like doing. Then you turn it around. And down here — what are you doing today that you don’t like doing? For me, anything that has any form of bureaucracy or forms or corporate speak drives me mad. I worked in the corporate world for about 15 years and finally realized — and was given lucky happenstance of having a television-writing wife to say (Brrrpppp) “I don’t need you anymore!” and I went to be a freelancer, but that is something that just irks me at every step of the way — that is, bureaucracy, corporate speak. I’m trying to think of what else I do not like. I don’t like being indoors every day. I do like some outside time, although I am a high-tech person I often say “There should be a balance in everyone’s life between high-tech and high-touch.” So, I’ll work on the computer in then morning. I’ll go for a hike in the afternoon.

Transcript:

Up here in the Northeast what we start to do is we start to note those things we’re doing today — those activities — Again, try to break it down into its smallest, smallest parts — those activities we’re doing today that we like. So, well, for me, I like speaking, Hey. Look at that. And you can actually use the distance from the center as a bit of a gradation. You can say, “I really like speaking or I sort of like it” or you can use it that way. I actually do a garden blog, so I like gardening so that’s an interest I like. I like technology. Technology for me was a vocation and an avocation. I would come home from working all day on computers and play with computers. That was just my interest in life. So, you go through and say “What do you like? I likeb being with children.” I like being outdoors or do you not mind being indoors. Two side of the coin. Maybe you’re more of a person who likes to look at nature through a window rather than be out there fighting off vicious city squirrels fighting for your lunch.

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:

I saw a quote today that just stuck with me from Alice in Wonderland.

She’s talking to the caterpillar and says, “Where should I go? Which road should I take?”

And the Caterpillar says, “I don’t know. Where you do want to go?”

And Alice says, “I don’t know.”

And the Caterpillar says. “Well, then, take either road, ” because if you don’t know where you’re going, you’re never going to get there.

That’s what happens in a lot of people’s careers. So, we take the long laundry list — and I would actually like you guys to do this at some point. I think it’s important for people to do, especially whether you’re struggling or not — sometimes it can illuminate something perhaps you even haven’t internalized or allowed to admit to yourself of an interest that you might have. So, I hope that by stepping through the process with you here today, you’ll have the ability to take this home and maybe try it out yourself.

So, I use the default North American default that good things are always to the North. Our course is always going to be the North. We’re trying to go Due North.

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.
