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:

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.

Transcript:

Does that make sense to people? Ok. If you were to sit down with this and draw this out — and I sort of would like you guys to at some point in your lives. I say you should revisit the compass about every 6 months really because life changes that frequently these days. 
You know you were going along happy go lucky and single living in a one bedroom apartment or a studio apartment having a good old time and then you meet someone you really, really like. Ok, that changes everything. When I met my wife in college — I met her my fall, the first night of my fall semester in college. I’d been there in the summer — for one quester in the summer — we met the first night of fall semester. My entire life changed. We have — we’ve not been apart since. We’ve been married 30 years in June and known each other for 32 beyond that at least.

Transcript:

…and while these are important to you, this one the danger zone. That’s the one — can I draw a skull and crossbones here — maybe? This is the quadrant you need to watch out for, but very important to think about. These are things you don’t like doing that you NEVER want to do. My lovely wife is here recording my talk today and she told me back when she was student teaching — we met in college — she came home from here student teaching — her first student teaching experience in an elementary school and was like “Oh my god, I can’t work, no, no, oh, I just want to mother all these children. I can’t be an authority figure. I can’t be a disciplinarian. I feel so sorry for them. I can’t work with young kids.” and she didn’t. She knew no, no, no, working with — no — “I need to work with high schoolers” and that’s what she did. She ended up working with high school kids over here. She discovered that.

Finally, the last quadrant down here. Things you are not doing today that you never want to do. I don’t think enough of us think about that one. I have a story. My wife, she started out as a teacher. We met in college. She was doing her first rotation of student teaching in the elementary classroom. She came home and said, ‘Oh my god, I cannot ever do elementary school teaching. I can’t discipline them. I just want to hug them I feel sorry for Tommy that’s being picked on by his sister and …” She ended up being a high-school teacher first because she immediately learned — seriously, that first week of student teaching — she knew right then. No. Not going to work in elementary school. Cannot do it.
