The Career Compass - Heading North from Two Challenges in Building the Career You Deserve [Video Clip]

 

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 method that I developed for this kind of concept of helping people is — for a lack of a better description — called the Career Compass. Ok? And this circular pattern and the compass pattern comes from a variety of reasons. One is, if you’ve ever been sailing, ever flown in an airplane, you’ve ever been in a car, you know that if you’re not traveling on a road — a defined road — you’re never really on course. If you look at the course of a sailing boat, it’s never, they’re never on a straight line. It’s impossible. You’ve got the winds pushing you one way. You’ve got the waves, pushing you the other. You’re steering whatever direction. You’re constantly correcting your course and that’s where the idea of the compass — for me — came from. You’re not headed Due North. You’re trying  to make decisions in your career that point you  — in this case — North being the the best solution — trying to keep you on course to the North.
