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:

The next step…once you’ve got your blog up and running…is sharing, beyond your blog, what you do. Now, how many people use Facebook? How many people use Facebook effectively? I struggle with this every day. Facebook right now — and these items from here on in could change — they could change by the time I get home tonight, but these are the things that are kind of attracting attention right now. Facebook has not been that useful to me over the years, but recently — through a connection of friends and the way they’re doing stuff on the site — it has actually become on of my foremost interaction points beyond my blog itself. It was Twitter for the longest time, but Twitter’s not quite sure what it is anymore, but it’s still useful. I still use Twitter. If you follow me you’ll see what I post there.

Transcript:

You want to be in someone’s mind — companies sit around saying, “Oh geez, our accountant’s leaving — our CFO is leaving — who do we know that — who do we know? Does anyone know any CFOs and CPAs that want — Oh, how about Bob?” That’s where those jobs are coming from. Long before it ever gets listed. Long before it ever gets bantered around even the internal circles the people inside that company go, “Who do we know?” and that doesn’t necessarily need to be a hard contact like “I know Bob. We have lunch every week or play golf or whatever reason like that. It can be a casual contact. “You know I’ve been reading this guys blog about this and he’s here locally. We should talk to him about this.” You never know.

The One Thing You Need To Do To Become More Creative via Fast Company

The One Thing You Need To Do To Become More Creative via Fast Company

If you want to become more creative, the answer may lie in becoming more courageous. A new class at USC Annenberg called Improvisational Leadership is encouraging students to step outside of their comfort zones and explore new experiences.

“Students fear finding the perfect job the day they graduate,” says Fred Cook, director of the USC Center for Public Relations and professor of professional practice. “They’re under pressure to perform because of student loans and their parents. They’ve taken the classes and done the internships, but they’re often short on life experience.”

Transcript:

Transition is a force for good in our lives, not evil and I think so many of us see it the opposite way. We see change as scary and frightening and bad and we seek to avoid it at all costs. Please don’t do that. It is these changes that arise that — like the Troy-Bilt opportunity I mentioned before — bring amazing opportunities into your life and much like the Compass, if you start to draw — how many people remember Venn Diagrams from their math class, right?– Union, Intersection, and all that stuff – if you start drawing the interests in your life and where they connect — soi say this is gardening. This is technology. This is writing. It’s where these interests bang up against each other that all the great stuff happens.

Someone is going to stumble across it. Someone is going to send you a question about it. Someone’s going to email you about it. Someone else is going to think “Hey, that’s pretty cool.” “I Built this robot that does that.” I guarantee you that if you do something like that people will come out of the woodwork. ‘”Oh that’s so cool.
