Attracting Career Opportunities To You from Two Challenges in Building the Career You Deserve [Video Clip]

October 20th, 2015

A Clip from Two Challenges in Building the Career You Deserve with Douglas E. Welch. Watch the entire presentation.

 

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 main goal of doing all of these things — of showing people “what you do and how well you do it” — and all of these things — discovering about your career — is to start to bring opportunities to you. Rather than having to go out and dig and beg and plead for opportunities, my goal, my future, long after I am dead, I’m sure before this happens, but the future I se for work should be one in which you are selecting from a series of opportunities that are available to you at any point in time. Not going out, hat in hand, resume in hand, and begging for a job. Because, in some cases, that’s what it turns out to be. I’ve been in those situations where I really need a job. So, I’m out there, hat in hand and saying, “Please give me a job,” and I would want to flip that over.
