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:

There is no longer a reason these days not to have your own “reel” as they call it and that “reel” doesn’t just apply to the entertainment industry, ok, it applies to everything that we do. You need that reel. You need those things, those interesting things to show people. Go out there and start doing it. Take something that really interests you and start doing it. then you’re going to generate interesting stuff that you can share out there and start to share them with people and hopefully start to attach and start to bring that opportunity to you. Again, you just want to have people say “Hey, have you heard about “ummmph”? “I know someone who does “blah.” You never know where that’s going to lead. You really don’t.

Transcript:

Podcasting is interesting. I was one of the first 20 podcasters back in 2004 because I had content. I was had already been writing my career column for a long time and I had some audio equipment so I was able to start literally within 2 weeks of the term being coined. Nowadays, podcasting has sort of been infiltrated by the big boys but that doesn’t mean you can’t use it to your own advantage. When I’m talking with voice over people or actors or someone like that, one of the hardest things to do when acting is to get known. Is to have work. To show people. You know you do showcases or you do open mic nights or you this and the other and I tell them, “You know what? You have a great new tool at your advantage here. YouTube and Podcasting. Do your own shows. Do your own shows. Do your own web shows. Do your own comedy half hour. Do whatever you do. Do you own voiceover work. Find an animator who’s looking for voices for their animation and do voice over for their animation

…and I learned that from an art teacher I had at Walt Disney Imagineering. We were lucky enough – even though I was in IT — we got to go to art coaching nights if we wanted and I took great advantage of that. I’m an amateur watercolor painter mainly because I got to work with my art coach, Ron and one of the first things Rosa said — we’d be working away and doing little stuff in the coaching session — and he’d say, yeah, that’s finished. Sign it. Because when you sign it you take ownership. You become proud of that and you will do better work after that point because you have taken control and pride in that work and I say, and I know it sounds a little weird in the career world “Sign the darn thing!” Make sure your name is on there somewhere and you can get away from anybody thinks you’re just being boastful or whatever by saying “If you have any questions. Contact me.” You’re doing it in a helpful way that says “Hey. I’m here to help.” It also gets your name in front of their face — also very helpful, but you can couch it a little bit in that.

Transcript:

Another important concept of all these things is to be proud of your work. I sort of took this to heart in the corporate world where reports would get made. Reports would get sent up the chain and questions would get asked. Your boss would come back to you with the questions and your answers would get filtered back up through the chain of command. I made a point — after about my second year at Disney — that if I did anything — if I did a report if I did a spreadsheet — if I did help with a project. You know what I did? I signed them. There’d be somewhere in that program, that spreadsheet, that document that said — “By the way, if you have any questions, talk to Dog. He’s the one that did it.” Because otherwise, you are an anonymous cog in a corporation. You don’t exist. Some cobbler’s elves down in the basement put together that report. You’re not doing it to be boastful. You’re not doing it to show off. You’re simply — like any artist — signing your work.

…and I have people find talks years later. They’ll write me very, very heartfelt notes and say “Oh my gosh! I just stumbled across this now. This is great and exactly what I needed to hear.” I say, “Ok.” That reinforces the reason I do these things and also enforces the reason I tell people things because I have seen it work in people’s favor. Because, again, you want to be first in people’s minds when they have a need. Regardless of what that need may be. It can be any specialty, as I said. You can be a plumber, a cook, a chef, whatever. It does not matter. If someone wants to learn how to cook coq au vin. Ok. You go to Google or YouTube and type coq au vin — coq au vin recipe and you’ll find just as many videos that people making coq au vin as you will find recipes listing it out in text. It can be very very useful to you.
