The Psychology of Career Decisions | Sharon Belden Castonguay | TEDxWesleyanU [keyword

by Tratamientorosacea



Did you choose your career, or did someone else do it for you? Adult developmental psychologist and career counselor Sharon Belden Castonguay unpacks how personal identities intersect with cultural influences to unconsciously affect our choice of work—and how self-awareness will be the key to success in the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Sharon Belden Castonguay, EdD, is an adult developmental psychologist and career counselor with twenty years of experience working with professionals at all levels of their careers. She is the Director of Wesleyan University’s Gordon Career Center and the host of two podcasts, Careers by Design: The Interviews and First Year Out. Prior to joining Wesleyan’s team she was the Director of the Graduate Career Management Center at Baruch College’s Zicklin School of Business. She has also served as a career counselor at Harvard University and at Boston University’s Questrom School of Business. Through her career consulting practice she has worked with many other top universities, and has been an invited speaker at Columbia, Dartmouth, Harvard Medical School, The New York Academy of Sciences, and Princeton, among others. She received her doctorate in human development from Harvard. She also holds an MA in Education from the University of Michigan and a BA in Government from Smith College. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at .

It's never too late! I just graduated med school and decided to follow my passion instead, and I'm the happiest I've ever been in life. 😀

I want to be a vet tech and since then I’ve finished my first semester of college but I also have a lot of ideas for books and comics so in my second semester I’m going to take an art class but more recently I’ve started looking into marine biology so I don’t know how to decide between three interesting fields because if I commit the rest of my life to one I’ll have to let the other one’s die and I can’t do that.

1. Engagement at work place is very important.
2. Design thinking is a good approach

3. Discover self

if you're reading this, get that college course you love to prevent regrets in the future. Do not listen to others, they don't know who you really are and they will not spare any seconds, too, to know you. SO, GET THAT COURSE.

so can we say that education can creat careers ?

DiMario Bell 14/09/2021 - 10:53 Sáng

My gosh… I took away from it that align career with who you are, not blindly chasing the one thing you're passionate about, but 1. understanding who you are and what works for how you're wired is important and 2. Understanding that who one is isn't just a singluar thing/identity and that finding one's career is a journey for some

Passion is overrated. We should focus on internal liking and disliking. Allowing yourself to make mistakes.

Thanks for sharing. So much of our career is affected by conscious and unconscious factors. However, we also can allow ourselves to creating our own career identity.

Everything needs time, even recognizing ourselves. Most people don't have that patience. But we can't blame them either for maybe they have loans to pay and don't even think that their passion is important and those time we reflect on ourselves won't pay any of our paychecks. But to those who have the priviledge to know their passion, and can follow it, I hope they have patience to endure anything that happen because I always remember this phrase "with a great power comes great responsibility", so it will never be easy. Thx for this talks Sharon.

What I got from this is that I should take a chance and pursue what I want to do for my life even if it might possibly be a bust. If i succeed, I'm happy with my career and If all else fails at least I know I tried and can move onto the next thing with no regrets.
