Career Choices Homework

Part 1: Preparation

For this assignment you will explore options available to you either in your current field or a field you are interested in. The key to this exploration is not just to uncover opportunities but to determine the qualifications, skills, and abilities that employers are seeking.

Part 2: Your Task

Visit one of the job Web sites such as or, and search for a position that meets your requirements for a great job.


Describe the position you identify (you can copy and paste the posting into your paper if you prefer).


What is it about this position that appeals to you? Be specific.


What are the minimum job requirements for the position in terms of education, experience, skills, knowledge, or abilities?


Compare the job requirements to your own qualifications. How close are you to meeting them?


If there is a difference between what the job requires and the qualifications you now possess, what, specifically, are you doing or can you do in the future to close that gap?
