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”


…and I learned that from an art teacher I had at Walt Disney Imagineering. We were lucky enough – even though I was in IT — we got to go to art coaching nights if we wanted and I took great advantage of that. I’m an amateur watercolor painter mainly because I got to work with my art coach, Ron and one of the first things Rosa said — we’d be working away and doing little stuff in the coaching session — and he’d say, yeah, that’s finished. Sign it. Because when you sign it you take ownership. You become proud of that and you will do better work after that point because you have taken control and pride in that work and I say, and I know it sounds a little weird in the career world “Sign the darn thing!” Make sure your name is on there somewhere and you can get away from anybody thinks you’re just being boastful or whatever by saying “If you have any questions. Contact me.” You’re doing it in a helpful way that says “Hey. I’m here to help.” It also gets your name in front of their face — also very helpful, but you can couch it a little bit in that.
