This assignment will help you do research on this topic and to paraphrase your information which means to put it in your own words. Use the skills you have and try new research techniques. Document (write down and share) what you tried and how successful you were.
Using the internet, conduct a basic Internet search to find résumés and articles from your degree field and information about the field. If you cannot find an article about your degree field, perhaps you could find an article by someone in the field.

Identify the career you chose and explain why you chose it.
