The Career Compass: Heading Due South from Two Challenges in Building the Career You Deserve

 

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:

So again, things you like doing that you’re doing now. Things that you don’t like that you’re doing now. As you might imagine, if north is the most positive, this is the area we want to go in.

They don’t like doing the work. They don’t like what the work accomplishes. They don’t like the topic. They don’t like the…whatever, but they end up being forced in this direction, but they don’t see it. I have sat at meals with people and just listened to the direst descriptions of their work life and I have to explain that, “You know, you’re kind of doing it to yourself here.” Can you find something that’s more, more in this area?” But they haven’t really thought of it that way.
