Discussion Board Assignment Help for US Students

Purpose:  The purpose of this assignment is to allow the student to reflect and understand what the motivating factors are in his/her career choice.  Through this understanding the student should become aware of the complex factors that will shape an individual’s career.
Discussion Board Assignment:  The following areas must be covered in the assignment.
1.  The student should read the attached chapter, Introduction to Career Planning (see attach).  Taken from: Reardon, R. C., Lenz, J. G., Peterson, G. W. and Sampson, J. P., (2012). Career Development and Planning, 4th Ed. Kendall Hunt Publishing; Dubuque, IA.
2.  The student should submit an original post on Blackboard no later than 12:00 pm on Friday, October 23rd.  The student’s original post should reflect on why/how the student identified his/her program (Tourism Development and Management) as a step towards their career path.
3. The student’s original post must be a minimum of 250 words.  The original post should be a reflection of the students decision and must reference at least two content areas from the reading.  The reference should include the page number as well as the paragraph and/or table number of the referenced content area.  The student should not use quotes from the reading.  Your references to the required reading must include some explanation as to how the referenced reading related to your situation/selection.
Example (108 words):  My decision to pursue a degree in parks and recreation was influenced by several factors.  Factors included; the general state of the economy at the time as well as chance circumstances (p. 7, Table 1.1).  I, like many, had no idea that there was actually a career in parks and recreation.  At the time I was in a forestry major and was not interested in the "farming" aspect of forestry.   My roommates girlfriend was in the parks and recreation degree program and that is how I became aware of the major.   In addition, the economy in the 70's provided resources for local, state, and national park employment opportunities.
4.  The student should respond to two other student posts no later than 11:59 pm on Monday, October 26th (i will send you guys two other student's post by tomorrow night).   The student response should reflect the content of the other students post.  Although there is not a minimum word requirement, your response should be thoughtful.  One or two sentences does not demonstrate a thoughtful response.
Evaluation:  The student will be evaluated on the following areas.
1.  Compostion and Grammar
2.  Depth of analysis (critical thinking) in his/her original post.
3.  Thoughtfulness demonstrated in his/her response to two other student posts.
4.  Accuracy – follow directions.

Discussion Board Assignment: Career PlanningMy decision to choose a program in Tourism Development and Management did not happen by chance. I always wanted to choose a career that would give me complete satisfaction and also motivate me at every step. I completely agree with the three steps mentioned by Frank Parson about a wise vocational choice. I have selected my career after assessing my interest, goals, values, skills, resources and background. I am planning to pursue all the relevant courses and this program is also a step towards my career. I have planned everything after careful reasoning (p.2,para.11).
