Describe your short-term career plan

Think about your career plans. Are you on track with those plans by pursuing your chosen major at Ashford University? Consider the steps you need to take now (other than school) to prepare yourself for your chosen career. What steps can you take later? Reflect on how you will hold yourself accountable and keep yourself motivated toward your goals.
Write: Use information from your checklist to help you formulate your responses to the following questions:

  • Describe your short-term career plan (one month to one year). Identify two items from your checklist, and explain how completing these tasks will help you meet this short-term goal.
  • Describe your long-term career plan (one to five years). Identify at least two items from your checklist, and explain how completing these tasks will help you meet this long-term goal.
  • How will you use the available Ashford University resources (e.g., Ashford Career Services, Ashford Writing Center, faculty, advisors, etc.) to help you meet your career goals?

Your initial post must be at least 250 words in length.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
