Information history

As a recent graduate, you just landed a job at a career counseling agency. As part of this role, you are given a project to update the resources that are provided to job seekers, including career reference brochures that help individuals understand the career development, lifelong learning opportunities/expectations, and basic requirements to obtain a job in their field.

Your main deliverable for this project will be the written material to be used in the pamphlets. Since you are not a subject matter expert in these areas, you need to use your research skills to find the information needed and cite the sources properly. Just like in the workplace, you are not required to produce the brochure itself; you will research and prepare the content to provide to the graphic design team.


To complete your Portfolio Project, you will need to: 

⦁ Choose a career or job title to research for this pamphlet – a good tip here is to choose a job or career that you’re interested in pursuing for your future to not only apply the research to your own life but also to make it more interesting for you!

⦁ Conduct research from reputable and reliable sources to create written materials that will guide job seekers in their pathway to a career. 

⦁ You will create three (3) 250-word written paragraphs to be included in the pamphlet on these topics:

⦁ Basic requirements needed to obtain the job: What is required to be considered for this job? Any specific degrees, certificates, experience, etc.?

⦁ Career development opportunities for this job: What does the ‘roadmap’ for this career look like? What are responsibilities that can grow within this field, and what other job titles can come after this one? If this job is one point on the career roadmap, what other milestones can come after it? For instance, a career progression or development path for a nurse might be a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), then Licensed Practicing Nurse (LPN) and then Registered Nurse (RN). 

⦁ Lifelong learning opportunities/expectations for this job: What are professional organizations that an individual in this career path can join? What learning opportunities exist to keep their content knowledge up to date and accurate? What expectations for lifelong learning are set within this field, such as CEU (Continuing Education Units) and/or re-certification requirements?

Requirements and Formatting

Across all three content paragraphs you must use four (4) total different sources from the Virtual Library, research, coursework in your program of study, and other credible resources to help support your answers.

Week 4 Research Paper: ERM Strategy

 The reading this week discusses strategy and how ERM can be integrated with an organization’s overall strategy. Prepare a research paper on some of the various issues, protocols, methods, frameworks you found and discuss how – if possible – organizations can use ERM as strategy. It is perfectly acceptable if you deem ERM cannot be used as strategy, just back up your claim with scholarly research and justifications. Your paper should meet these requirements: 

  • Be approximately four to six pages in length, not including the required cover page and reference page.
  • Follow APA 7 guidelines. Your paper should include an introduction, a body with fully developed content, and a conclusion.
  • Support your answers with the readings from the course and at least two scholarly journal articles to support your positions, claims, and observations, in addition to your textbook. 
  • Be clearly and well-written, concise, and logical, using excellent grammar and style techniques. You are being graded in part on the quality of your writing.
