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”


This is going to sound really weird. I always get some odd looks when I talk about it in this way, but there are a couple of things you need to be doing — today — if you aren’t doing them already to start the opportunities coming to you. The word — the phrase you’re going to hear me say again and again and again in this next section is “You need to be showing people —
constantly — what you do and how well you do it.” If you are not doing that on a daily basis you are limiting yourself — you are limiting your opportunities and you’re putting yourself in the position of having to beg for a job. “What you do and how well you do it.” Now, as you can imagine, back in 1986 — 1980 — yeah 86 — when I entered the work market, the tools to do something like that — to tell people what you do and how well you do it — didn’t really exist.
