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”
For me, the phrase that I say again and again and again and again to everyone I talk to at CareerCamp, when I speak to groups like this, everywhere, is “Your job — and the job of everyone working, no matter what work they do, whether they’re a plumber, a chemist, a psychologist, a history professor, whatever, your goal is to show people what you do and how well you do it.” It all comes don to that. No one is going to do it for you. You are the only one who can truly show that to anyone, because you are the only one who cares as much about your career as you do. No one else can. It is just a simple fact of human nature. No one can be that empathetic. If they were, they’d never get anything done, right? We can only really care about what we want out of our careers and out of our lives and therefore, it’s up to you to promote what you want to do, what you’re trying to do, what you know and how well you do it. Ok?
