What You Never Want To Do from Using the Career Compass to Find Your Work and Career [Video] (0:52)
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”
Finally, the last quadrant down here. Things you are not doing today that you never want to do. I don’t think enough of us think about that one. I have a story. My wife, she started out as a teacher. We met in college. She was doing her first rotation of student teaching in the elementary classroom. She came home and said, ‘Oh my god, I cannot ever do elementary school teaching. I can’t discipline them. I just want to hug them I feel sorry for Tommy that’s being picked on by his sister and …” She ended up being a high-school teacher first because she immediately learned — seriously, that first week of student teaching — she knew right then. No. Not going to work in elementary school. Cannot do it.
