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:

…and I know learning by doing these days is coming and going. We’ve got this whole “Maker Ethic” that’s coming out now about getting kids hands-on, STEM and STEAM programs and stuff like that. I personally think that the best way to learn is having some component of doing. Yes, there are certain things you just need to learn, but there’s also — if you can learn something and apply that learning immediately in some physical or useful or productive method. For me, I know that would lock in facts that I retain to this day from my high school botany class that I should, by no rights, need or want to remember, but they are burned into a groove in my brain because we talked about it in the classroom and we went down to the greenhouse and we did it and that has always been so effective for me. This is one form of your doing.
