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:

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?”

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)

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!”
