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 other great this is this can be used to help you evaluate opportunities that do arise. Remember, I talked about that goal of mine to bring opportunities to you. Well, what happens when opportunities pop up out of the blue sometimes. Well, what’s our normal reaction when an opportunity pops up out of the blue? “Oh My God! No, no no . I can’t do it. It’s too scary. I can’t…” We’re fearful. We;re terribly fearful of it because there is something new and something we hadn’t really considered. But if we have worked with the Compass, we can say, “Ok. Let me step away from the fear issue of this opportunity and let me say ‘Where does that opportunity fit on the Compass?'” If I take that opportunity. Say I have a chance to tour as a harmonica player with a blues band in Japan. Which actually happened to me once, but where does that fall on my compass? OF those elements of doing that particular job where would it fall? Well, I really like music. Travelling is a little scary for me. I’m not a good traveller. That would be a little..um, ok. I like the people I meet. I like performing. So, you know, I could use the compass to then evaluate that opportunity and say “Is this something I should look into further?”
