What Would You Like To Do? from Using the Career Compass to Find Your Work and Career [Audio] (0:54)
Read the book
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”
These are things you’re NOT doing today — Oh, I’m sorry — not ding today that you like doing. What would like to do? What would you like to try to make part of your career? You want to play music. Do you want to work with kids? You want to live on that South Sea Island and phone in your work via the WiFi. What do you want to do? Do you like travel? I like traveling for pleasure, but I hate traveling for work. And that was something I had to figure out early on in my corporate career, because they would want to send me and I was like “No.” If I go there and just visit. Glad to. Go there to work. You don’t see anything but the inside of the hotel and the inside of the office. It’s not that much fun. So traveling for work is not a big thing for me, but traveling in general — if I can travel for fun — I’m also an avid photographer — I love taking photos and travel is a great opportunity for that.
