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”
Yes. it can be scary. I do want to address that. It can be frightening. It can be a little off-putting. “What do I have to write? How do I…? Oh, I’m not that good of a writer.” You know what? You get better. I started off writing the column when I had never written anything but college papers and everything I had ran through my wife who’s an English teacher and it would come back all redlined at the time and every column I got a little bit better and those chronic problems that she corrected every single column, every single week, started to disappear. My commas got better. My possessive’s got better. Anybody can get there and I will say even if the quality of what you’re sharing — how it’s presented — how it’s shot on video — how it’s written — is a little bit less than perfect — and we’ll all think our stuff is less than perfect — it’s just human nature — if it’s good information, people will forgive a lot. People will forgive crappy video if the message inside that video is good and important to them.
