This assignment is based on you choosing two possible career choices you would recommend to an employee, client or professional contact. Here’s the situation: You are to choose two possible career choices. Your report should include the following: Information and background about your two career choices.

You will need to conduct outside research and cite your sources using APA citations. Conclude the formal report by making recommendations to your audience. Your report MUST be formatted as a formal report.

Part One – Table of Contents and Introduction

Your assignment this week is to write your formal report’s table of contents and introduction, using formal formatting. To complete this assignment, you will need to have a good plan in place for your formal report. I encourage you to use the three-step process (planning, writing, and revising.) (The formal report is due in its entirety at the end of week 8. In week 6, only the table of contents and introduction are due.)

Part Two – Formal Report in Full

In week 6, you planned the formal report and wrote the Table of Contents and Introduction. In week 8, you will complete the formal report. (You may need to revise the Table of Contents and Introduction, based on the feedback you receive from your instructor.) In week 8, your assignment should contain the following:

Be formatted as a formal report, following the guidelines for formal reports in the text (including the guidelines for headings and subheadings found on pages 435-448); Include appropriate prefatory, text, and supplemental parts (The formal report should contain appropriate prefatory, text, and supplemental parts, including the following: a cover and/or title page; a letter of transmittal; a table of contents; the four-part Introductory Section from week 6; appropriately labeled body sections; and appendices, such as the client interview and list of references. Your report does not need to contain all of these parts, but should contain most of them.); Fully answer the question of what career would you recommend to an employee, client or professional contact. The word count for the intro, body, and conclusion should be 1250-1750 words); Use at least six credible researched sources appropriately and effectively; Include proper documentation using APA style (both in-text and end-of-text citations–please check your work using turnitin.com); and Be free of spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors.

Note: Visual aids are entirely appropriate for this kind of report, but they are not required. If you decide to use visual aids, be certain to adhere to the standards we have studied previously in this course.
