Analytical Paper Assignment
As part of the writing-intensive requirement, you will write a 2,000-word analytical research paper on the career opportunities and industry outlook for your chosen field. You will prepare an informal proposal, a draft of the analytical report, and the final, edited report.
The purpose of this assignment is to help you become more knowledgeable about careers in business and will be helpful in your future career. Additionally, this assignment is to further develop your critical thinking and writing skills as well as determining what is appropriate evidence. By appropriate evidence I mean no Wikipedia, blogs, tweets, etc. Do not expect to get all of your resources just by Google-ing. You can gain access to scholarly journals and trade publications through the Library resources. You must include current (not more than 5 years old) journals and publications – not just websites.
Your paper MUST be submitted in draft formats demonstrating the development of your paper to receive credit. If you submit a finalized paper for the drafts, you will NOT receive credit.
