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

Transcript:

Define, control and create your career yourself or others will gladly do it for you. If you haven’t experienced it yet  — and I’m pretty sure we all have — “What do you mean you want an art degree? No ,you’re going to become a lawyer!” No, you have to take that control yourself or other people will gladly tell you what to do with your life. We like to do that. We like to fix other people. Even if we don’t think that way. Maybe it’s just below that conscious level of “I want to fix you” — it’s just a normal human thing. “Oh, you have a question. You have a problem? I’ll fix it. Here. Do this! That would fix it for me, so therefore it will fix it for you, right?” Well, no, not always. So, don’t let others do that for you. Do it for yourself, because that is certainly not the way to “Build the Career You Deserve” and that’s a tagline I use for both my column, my podcast and CareerCamp in general.
