For this assignment, do some research regarding your potential career. In addition to researching your career, look at job ads for positions in your career field. What soft skills are needed for this career? What soft skills are companies looking for?
Next, look back at the soft skills that we discussed in the Week 2 discussion. What soft skills did you find to be applicable to you? How can you use these soft skills in your future? Which soft skills do you have that will make you an ideal candidate for your career field?
Write an IWG-formatted paper about: Your current soft skills – Looking at the lists of soft skills you’ve researched, which ones do you consider current strengths? Why are they strengths to your future career? At least three soft skills you need to work on – Why these soft skills? What will they provide you in your new career? – What is your specific plan to develop these skills? How will you measure your progress?
The body (written text) of the paper should be at least 600 words in length&mdashnot including the title page and the reference page.
The paper should have at least five (5) paragraphs including an introduction paragraph and conclusion paragraph. The introduction paragraph tells the reader what you plan to tell them. The conclusion paragraph summarizes what you’ve told them.Make sure to use in-text citations for any and all information that you borrowed from the resources you used for your research (both quoted and paraphrased), and list the resources on your reference page. A minimum of two sources is required for this assignment. You can think of the in-text citations as the clues on a treasure map and the reference on the reference page as the actual treasure. The point of doing it this way is to let the reader stay focused on reading the paper. They can check the references later to verify the reference is valid and to gain additional insight into the topic. Each source you use will have at least one in-text citation in the paper and the source information in the reference page.
Submit your paper as a .doc, .docx, or .rtf attachment by midnight Saturday for 100 points. Do not forget to use spell check, grammar check, and proofread before submitting.
