It's funny because I have a professor who looks just like Jim Carrey.

Follow a Career Passion? Let It Follow You

Follow a Career Passion? Let It Follow You | Career Development Domagala | Scoop.it

"Passion is not something you follow. It’s something that will follow you, once you make an informed choice."

 

Smart decision making does not assume "blank slate."  It's about finding the best fit for who we are.  This something I continue to follow as an executive coach.  It resonates, thinking back to what I used to offer to all levels of students and alumni as I helped them with career development in my first professional job back the early 80's.

Follow our passion” advice assumes that we all have a pre-existing passion waiting to be discovered.

Cal Newport's reflection of his choices is useful in considering how each of us may discover our true calling. It may also evolve over time in this ever changing world, yet it still provides insights into how we find what energizes us each day in our work and in the long term. ~ Deb

 

Excerpts:


“Follow our passion” advice assumes that we all have a pre-existing passion waiting to be discovered.

 

This philosophy puts a lot of pressure on the rest of us. The alternative career philosophy that drove me is based on this simple premise: The traits that lead people to love their work are general and have little to do with a job’s specifics.


These traits include a sense of autonomy and the feeling that you’re good at what you do and are having an impact on the world.   Decades of research on workplace motivation back this up. (Daniel Pink’s book “Drive” offers a nice summary of this literature.)

...the right question is not, “What is this job offering me?” but, instead, “What am I offering this job?”

For someone in a new position, the right question is not, “What is this job offering me?” but, instead, “What am I offering this job?”For someone in a new position, the right question is not, “What is this job offering me?” but, instead, “What am I offering this job?”

 

Had I subscribed to the “follow our passion” orthodoxy, I probably would have left (my job as a Ph.D. student) during the first years, worried that I didn’t feel love for my work every day. But I knew that my sense of fulfillment would grow over time, as I became better at my job. So I worked hard, and, as my competence grew, so did my engagement.

 

Today, I’m a computer science professor at Georgetown University, and I love my job. …Passion is not something you follow. It’s something that will follow you as you put in the hard work to become valuable to the world.

Exploring the Potential Benefits of Facebook on Personal, Social, Academic and Career Development for Higher Education Students - Springer

Exploring the Potential Benefits of Facebook on Personal, Social, Academic and Career Development for Higher Education Students - Springer | Career Development Domagala | Scoop.it

At present, Facebook is a free and one of the most popular social networking sites. Its primary purpose is to provide an online communication platform for users to make new friends and interact with them. It may be an ideal platform for online learning community with great potential to facilitate student guidance and counseling work. In this paper, we present findings from a small scale study exploring the potential benefits of Facebook on personal, social, academic and career development. Data were collected from interviews and messages written by the students on Facebook. The results indicated that both students and teachers would benefit from this new approach. The potential benefits of Facebook for students are not only limited to academic development but also in personal/social development and career development.
