De-Construction in Career Development
Can you Identify–
Early Recollections–early childhood memories with an emotional component that are unforgettable
Role Models–people whom we admire–we may want to construct our identity based upon several admirable role models
Turning Points/Transformations–a change in direction–coming to the U.S.–coming to college–losing a job–making an important decision
Preoccupations–in the video above, Dr. Andrew B.’s early recollection was being told that he was slow as a child–he was not–he needed glasses to correct his poor vision–he became preoccupied with this dilemma–became a doctor and returned to Kenya to help young children to see clearly and to eradicate blindness.  Dr. Martin Luther King was preoccupied with social justice and civil rights–his life and careers were dedicated to these causes.  A preoccupation is something that you can’t stop thinking about–it preoccupies you–it may become an occupation–finance, marketing, accounting, business, science, nursing, etc.
Mentors – people who encourage you along the way–who help make a path for you–who are concerned about your professional and personal development–who help in challenging situations.
Life Lessons/Philosophies/Statements – What lessons have your learned from your life experience–do you have a philosophy of life or a motto that you live by–
Can you make a connection between a preoccupation of the author and his or her occupation.
