Transcript:

That’s a thing to think about is there major aspects of this job that simply do not fit you. You’re going to do this thinking for yourself. You’re also going to do it for the company looking to hire you. Sometimes companies will hire someone because they just need to hire somebody. Regardless, necessarily of how good of a fit that person is. You’re both going to be served very, very poorly by that situation. It will result in friction. It will result in conflict. It will result in just a generally bad experience for everyone involved. You, your coworkers, your management, the company, everybody. I always seek to avoid that and again, this is one way of doing it. It’s nothing fancy. It’s just a way — like this little trick — it’s just a way to get you to think differently or to get you to think at all. I know myself. I get tied up in stress and stuff and I just start acting. I start reacting to everything and there are times when you need to stop reacting and start thinking.

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

Read the book

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:

Now, what I like best about the compass is, not only is good to decide about your current work that you might be doing, every opportunity that comes down the road now — once you’ve done this once — can be used, can be evaluated against the compass. What are the major aspects of this job? X, Y, and Z. Where do X, Y and Z fit on the compass? Well, that’s going to tell you right away that jobs are a good fit for you. This isn’t about money. This isn’t about the company. It’s not about that. To me, the first thing you have to figure out is, “is this a fit for me? Can I do great work in this job?” Where does X, Y, and Z fit on the compass? Well, if they’re down here, that’s a red flag. That’s a red flag and you’re going to have to do some much more deep thinking about it.

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?”

Transcript:

That’s why I say you have to do some “hard thinking” yourself and we don’t always get that sign from above or below that says, “You should be doing this!” We have to think about it ourselves and My favorite thing to do is to take my notepad, go out in the garden, beverage of your choice — I’ll make no judgments there at all — and think for a little while. Away from the noise, the family and work and life in general and just start associating and thinking about these things. That’s why —  the form of the compass is just a way to help us think and bring up ideas and give us something to think about and give us a way to take kind of these free-floating thoughts and get them into something concrete that we can use.
