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”
You want to be in someone’s mind — companies sit around saying, “Oh geez, our accountant’s leaving — our CFO is leaving — who do we know that — who do we know? Does anyone know any CFOs and CPAs that want — Oh, how about Bob?” That’s where those jobs are coming from. Long before it ever gets listed. Long before it ever gets bantered around even the internal circles the people inside that company go, “Who do we know?” and that doesn’t necessarily need to be a hard contact like “I know Bob. We have lunch every week or play golf or whatever reason like that. It can be a casual contact. “You know I’ve been reading this guys blog about this and he’s here locally. We should talk to him about this.” You never know.
