Employment Outlook Report (draft) and Peer Reviews

In the groups from your previous assignment, research the employment outlook for your future profession. Present your findings as a formal research report that academic advisors and undergraduate directors would use to advise and recruit students into your major.

Each team member is responsible for locating and synthesizing data from the Occupational Outlook Handbook (Links to an external site.) (Bureau of Labor Statistics) as well as 3 current job postings in your desired field and location. Each team member will also interview 1 relevant professional who works outside the university (this is an opportunity to network on LinkedIn). As a team, synthesize all this primary and second research and then present it to readers in a form that reflects the principles of effective technical communication. The final report should run about 3,000–3,500 words.
