PART 2: EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES AND APPLICATIONS OF APPLIED LEARNING

Now that you’ve considered some of the reasons why you’re attracted to your career, your next step is to locate potential employers or identify clients or customers that might be interested in your new skills and knowledge. Locate any five (5) employment ads related to your particular area of study. The ads can be from online job-search sites, newspapers, trade publications, or any other legitimate source. Try to find a range of employment descriptions and employers. Provide the name of the potential employer if available, but most importantly list the job skills and employee characteristics the employer is looking for. List any certifications or professional affiliations required to apply for employment. If salary information is provided, include that as well. If your source is computerbased, you can copy and paste the ad into your document.

In addition to potential employers, research and identify three (3) clients or potential customers in your local area that you could market your new skills to if you were to be self-employed. You can also identify three (3) other situations where you might be able to apply the skills you have obtained.
