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:

People tend to think that just talking about an opportunity means they’re accepting it and I have to talk them down from the ledge and say, “No. No. No. It’s just an opportunity. Why wouldn’t you go meet with that person? Why wouldn’t you go and have coffee with that person? Why wouldn’t you talk about this opportunity?” Yes, it might be totally — I got asked once to go on a tour through Japan with a blues guitarist as his harmonica player. Well, I didn’t do that professionally. I did it as a hobby, but events arise. It didn’t happen, but you know, events arose. I had to really think about that for a while. I hadn’t ever thought of that. What a weird thing and it scared me and I wanted to say “No, no, no, no”, but I had to say, “No. Why can’t I talk about it.” In this case, it didn’t happen. Lots of opportunities are going to happen, but you don’t want to be the one turning away that opportunity that is going to change your life forever.

Transcript:

So this can help you decide what you want to do. The other great thing I like about it is it can help you evaluate opportunities that come to you. Because in the next section we’re going to talk about this whole opportunity economy or whatever you want to call it. Oftentimes, if an opportunity shows up to you out of the blue, what is your first response? Well, I know for me it’s fear. You get that fight or flight response. You’re like “Oh no. That’s too different. I can’t …” and oftentimes I see people –myself included — slam the door in opportunity’s face. “Why did I do that?”

Finally, the last quadrant down here. Things you are not doing today that you never want to do. I don’t think enough of us think about that one. I have a story. My wife, she started out as a teacher. We met in college. She was doing her first rotation of student teaching in the elementary classroom. She came home and said, ‘Oh my god, I cannot ever do elementary school teaching. I can’t discipline them. I just want to hug them I feel sorry for Tommy that’s being picked on by his sister and …” She ended up being a high-school teacher first because she immediately learned — seriously, that first week of student teaching — she knew right then. No. Not going to work in elementary school. Cannot do it.

Transcript:

These are things you’re NOT doing today — Oh, I’m sorry — not ding today that you like doing. What would like to do? What would you like to try to make part of your career? You want to play music. Do you want to work with kids? You want to live on that South Sea Island and phone in your work via the WiFi. What do you want to do? Do you like travel? I like traveling for pleasure, but I hate traveling for work. And that was something I had to figure out early on in my corporate career, because they would want to send me and I was like “No.” If I go there and just visit. Glad to. Go there to work. You don’t see anything but the inside of the hotel and the inside of the office. It’s not that much fun. So traveling for work is not a big thing for me, but traveling in general — if I can travel for fun — I’m also an avid photographer — I love taking photos and travel is a great opportunity for that.

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:

Working through the compass requires some hard thinking. This is something I often on the readers of my career column, Career Opportunities, to do. They hate that word. I get that feedback from them.

“Oh oh, he said ‘hard thinking’ again.”

Because that’s often the most important thing you have to think about are those things that are difficult — that are hard to think about. What do you want? How do you balance life and career? How do you decide what you want to do? How do you decide, even whenever everyone else is telling you no, that you want to say Yes to something? Hard thinking.

Beyond that, most people don’t think at all. We talked about, I talked about earlier about the fact the people often just get pushed from job to job.

“Well, here’s a job, oh, I need a new job. Ooooh, that one’s available. Ok, I’ll take that. That one’s available. I’ll take that one.” You wander out here in the woods and wonder “how did I get out there? How did I get to where I am today?”

And that is exactly what will happen if you don’t do some hard thinking and some conscious thought about what you want to do.
