Douglas E. Welch ( 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”


But since the invention of the Internet, we now have a series of tools that make it easy .cheap — if not free — in most cases — and provide you a way of reaching out to a world of opportunity that wasn’t ever possible before. The best way of telling people what you do and how well you do it is to tell somebody about it and one of the first things I tell most people to do is start a blog. A blog can be anything. Free services all over the place to set up a blog. WordPress. Blogger. Tumblr. Twitter can be considered a microblog if you will. The reason I start with a blog is when I talk with people I say “Well, what do you want to do?What are your skills? What are you interested in? What neat things  have you done?” They’ll start off saying “Oh I don’t have anything interesting to say. Everybody has something interesting to say. Everybody has some unique that they do, but they don’t have a place to tell people about it.
