This introductory writing assignment requires you to research, analyze, and summarize the state of your future industry/career. The objective of this essay is to help you to establish realistic expectations for your future career as well as to practice outlining and writing a short essay.

- Notice that I am studying Economics, so it will be my field.


For the industry in which you aspire to work, you must first identify and outline the chain of positions for your career choice: consider entry level, mid-level, and senior positions. For each level, investigate the trends and challenges you may face using the following questions:

What is the future job outlook (i.e., are there a lot of jobs available in your aspired field; can you find any data about the number of graduates finding work in the industry)?

Which regions provide the strongest and weakest outlooks (i.e., where might you need to move to obtain a job in your field)?

What skills and requirements are most often connected to this title in your industry?

How are different demographics (gender, race, ethnicity, age, level of education, etc.) represented in this industry? How might this impact your own career preparations and aspirations?

What is the average salary for this title? What is the average starting salary?

Why are you interested in or feel you are well-suited for this industry?
