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:

Now this also helps you to say no to the wrong opportunities when they come up. Because that’s another big thing. You’ve heard today, I’m sure, about the power in saying no. You have to “know” when to say “no” to things. Because they may not be a good fit for you. They may be a good fit for somebody else. They may be a good fit for your coworker. They may be a good fit for your company, but they may not be a good fit for you and you need the power and the intelligence and the thinking to say no to those opportunities. The fact is, there are too many people out there today who will gladly tell you what to do with your career. Your spouse will gladly tell you what to do with your career. Your children will gladly tell you. Your co-workers. Your boss. Everyone — if you don’t decide what to do in your career, there are a million people out there — everyone from your boss to the guy to talk to at the bus stop — will gladly tell you what you should be doing — including me. Which is why I say to take what I say as a grain of salt and try to apply what I say to you, don’t think of it as some directive that says you MUST do this.
