Career Planning Research ~ Mrs. Cowan

Writing at the Threshold
K. Cowan
Mini Research Project:  Career

For this project you are going to research a career that you are interested in pursuing. You need to find information about this career based on the list below. Once you have collected all of the work, you will write a 5 page paper.

You are required to use at least 3 sources
You must follow MLA format

Here is a list of the information that you should acquire about your career
·         What kind of experience does it require?
·         What kind of preparation (classes, tests, certification, etc.) does it require?
·         Are there entry level positions?
·         Is there room for advancement?
·         How much money do you expect to earn in this career annually?  (You might compare starting salary with experience based salary.)
·         How long does this career usually last?
·         Does it require education beyond a high school diploma?
