Res wknd – practical connection: career plotting

Background: Read the article at the link below by Nicole Fallon “Destination Dream Job”. Pay close attention to the roadmap outlined in the article about career progression. Fallon outlines 4 steps that one needs to take to reach their career goal (see link below). Career experts have also shared their advice for mapping out a path to one’s ultimate dream job. Those steps include: (1) Know where you want to go, (2) Focus on the tools you need, (3) Find a guide, and (4) Be open to changing your route.

Your assignment

Plot your career direction based on each step in this roadmap.  For step #1 you should look at where you are now (what industry, job, position, etc.).  Also answer where you want to go (industry, job, position, salary, etc.) from here. For step #2, I would like you to go online and explore various job announcements and position descriptions to see what you need (what experience, degree, certification, interest, passion, etc.). In this context, I also would like you to state how pursuing this degree, and this course specifically, is a tool for the career direction in which you are going. Then for step #3, do you know anyone who might be a mentor; are you pursuing opportunities to network with like-mined professionals, etc. Finally, for step #4, is there some short-term deviation from your goal that you would accept – what is it?

It should take just a short paragraph that address each of the four steps mentioned above.  The background and online research for this assignment can be done collectively in your group. However, the findings must be specific for you individually and so your post must be individual.  As I have always mentioned, do not cut and paste information from other sources – I want  your  view and in  your  words.    As your reader, I want to be able to follow whatever sources you use, so support your views (and findings) with  at least two in-text citations . This means you will also need a reference list. For this assignment (only), a url  reference is acceptable (not usually acceptable for APA).   This is an  individual assignment  which must be accomplished by you alone. Please post your paper to iLearn  NLT 6/11 – 8pm EST.

When you are ready to post, click the Res Wknd Practical Connection assignment link, then Either click the “Write Submission” link and directly paste your document into this assignment box OR Browse your Computer and add the entire Microsoft Word document as an attachment (Mac users, please remember to append the “.docx” extension to the filename).
