Welcome to the ENGL 150 Careers Lib Guide!

Background

Whether talking to counselors or classmates, coworkers or employers, family or friends, college students frequently face the age-old question about what they plan to do with their college education. This research paper will help you further explore one college major (field of study) or one career pathway that you find interesting or appealing (note: you do not need to be committed to this major or career).  Using primary interview sources and secondary sources from the library databases and the Internet, you will have the opportunity to explore, cohere, and clarify your own educational or professional goals as you synthesize this information into a research paper.  Your work can also help you articulate a response when faced with that sometimes annoying and often daunting question about what you plan to do with your college education.

Task

In a 2,000- to 3,000-word paper (about seven to ten double-spaced pages), respond to the following question: “So, [your name here], what do you want to do with your college education?”  Write your paper to a general audience, choosing one of the following options for answering the question:

Option A:  Focus on one career after college in which you are interested.

Option B:  Focus on one major or field of study in college in which you are interested.

Student Learning Outcomes

Our goals for today include:

  • Recapping the various elements required for the paper
  • Orienting students for using the databases or other resources to find information about current issues in the career or field of study they have chosen
  • Identifying at least one source through the Library resources that students could use for their paper
