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”
So this can help you decide what you want to do. The other great thing I like about it is it can help you evaluate opportunities that come to you. Because in the next section we’re going to talk about this whole opportunity economy or whatever you want to call it. Oftentimes, if an opportunity shows up to you out of the blue, what is your first response? Well, I know for me it’s fear. You get that fight or flight response. You’re like “Oh no. That’s too different. I can’t …” and oftentimes I see people –myself included — slam the door in opportunity’s face. “Why did I do that?”
