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”
In my own career…the struggles I’ve had in my career and the struggles I have heard because I write about careers, it has really driven home to me how important it is to talk about these things, to think about these things to utilize tools like we have today that have never existed before in our history. To get out the word about what we know — what we do and how well we do it. To me, I’ll even say it this way — and it sounds a little rough, but — you’re foolish if you are not using these free tools that you are given. It is like not using the telephone back in the day. Ok? These are tools that are free — cheap or free — for you that you can use to make your life and your career better. If you’re not using them, you’re foolish. Don’t do that.
