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”


Another important concept of all these things is to be proud of your work. I sort of took this to heart in the corporate world where reports would get made. Reports would get sent up the chain and questions would get asked. Your boss would come back to you with the questions and your answers would get filtered back up through the chain of command. I made a point — after about my second year at Disney — that if I did anything — if I did a report if I did a spreadsheet — if I did help with a project. You know what I did? I signed them. There’d be somewhere in that program, that spreadsheet, that document that said — “By the way, if you have any questions, talk to Dog. He’s the one that did it.” Because otherwise, you are an anonymous cog in a corporation. You don’t exist. Some cobbler’s elves down in the basement put together that report. You’re not doing it to be boastful. You’re not doing it to show off. You’re simply — like any artist — signing your work.
