A Clip from “It’s Your Career, After All” with Douglas E. Welch from the Career Opportunities Podcast
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
So to close out today on this, and then we’ll take some questions real quick don’t focus solely on the external factors of your career. Your resume. Your certificates. Your interviews. Your clothing. Whatever. Don’t focus exclusively on those. Look to the internal factors, too. Your wants, needs and desires and that’s a phrase I use again and again and again in my writing and my speaking. Your wants, needs and desires. Because, frankly, none of us think about those things enough. None of us. Because life shoves out that thinking time. The baby’s crying. I got to go deal with that and, all of a sudden, you don’t get back to the thinking you wanted to do at that time. Get to know yourself better and you will be a better job candidate. You will be a better employee. You’ll be a better entrepreneur. You’l be a better artist. You’ll be a better — whatever you decide to do — if you know more about yourself.
