Running head: BUDGETING FOR CAREER INFORMATION CENTER Budgeting for Career Information Center Name Tutor Course Date 1 BUDGETING FOR CAREER INFORMATION CENTER 2 Budgeting for Career Information Center Memorandum To: The Director of Client Services From: Procurement Advisor Date: 13th November 2018 Re: The Career Information Center The goal of every career information center is to be fully equipped with information that can help clients make good plans regarding the future of their career. Different people go to these centers to seek guidance when transiting from one job to the other or during career planning (Leong, 2014). It would be a disappointment for both sides if the client lacks what they came for in the center. The information center will be of help to many groups including Young adults who intend to join college, paroled offenders, individuals in companies that are about to shut down or downsize, military veterans and fresh graduates. A lot of people have trouble arriving at the job that fulfils them and need someone or something to guide them through the job seeking period. Without career information resources, they end up jobless or in the wrong line of work, thereby leading to a poor performance at the work place. Many people also end up quitting their jobs before the retirement period because they can no longer stand the jobs. Therefore, the career information center will play a huge role in the community and will eventually see the society progress in different areas. To open an effective career information center, a well worked budget has to be presented so that the money is allocated appropriately according to the order of necessity. Therefore, I will produce a budget BUDGETING FOR CAREER INFORMATION CENTER regarding the things that are supposed to be procured for the information center to act as a guideline when making purchases. List of Vendors Career Bookstore Amazon (Amazon, 2018) Powell’s Book (Powell’s Book, 2018) Thrift Book (Thrift Book, 2018) Alibris (Alibris, 2018).

There are various materials in the stores which can be purchased by different clients for career planning and assessment (Career Bookstore, 2018). The prices only vary by a small amount in different stores, where one thing may be cheaper in one place and another more expensive in the same store. The total cost will, therefore, end up within the budget no matter the vendor you choose to buy from, which is 1,500 dollars. The materials are credible and the information contained can be of great help (Hofstede, 2016). BUDGETING FOR CAREER INFORMATION CENTER 5 References Alibris. (2018). Retrieved from: Amazon (2018).
