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:

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?”

Transcript:

At one point in my career out here in Los Angeles, I ended up at a mutual fund company — doing IT at a mutual fund company. What I knew about mutual funds and the banking system and Wall Street could have not even filled the bottom of a thimble. Even worse, my interest in such things was even smaller than my knowledge, but it was a job. It was a job I needed. I went there — the company I was working for was a small company that was closing — and I worked there for a year and a half, but I very quickly realized — dear, dear, dear — if there’s not something else there within your company, if that company isn’t doing something that you’re at least moderately interested in, you’re going to have a really hard time working there, because it will, truly, become the 9 to 5, get up up go to work, come home, eat dinner, watch TV, go to bed. Which is something that our parents lived with. It doesn’t work that way any more, though. Most of us want more out of our lives and careers and so we have to develop ways of building those type of careers.

Choice and Transition from Transition is the New Normal 2016 [Audio] (1:02)

September 13th, 2016 Comments off

A clip from the presentation, “Transition is the New Normal” to OPEN (Outstanding Professionals Employment Network) Ventura County in Simi Valley, CA on March 4, 2016

Transcript:

Engage in your transitions and choose your transitions. You don’t just willy-nilly from job to job — from career to career — from interest to interest. You make carefully considered decisions. There is a point where people begin to think ” I HAVE to do this. I HAVE to do that, but I want to do this” and I often tell them, “If you want to do this, there are a million reasons NOT to do that. You need to find the one reason to do it.” Because that’s your reason. That’s your personal reason to do something and you’ve got to go out and search for that. Sometime you find it. Sometimes you don’t, but you have to take control over those decisions and those thoughts. Don’t let other people simply say, “Oh, here’s a job. Take it. Here’s a life. Take it. Ok, you’re moving to Wisconsin. Take 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 [Audio] (0:53)

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

Listen to this clip

 

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.
