Project #50422 - write 4-6 pages about business

Ethnography

This assignment asks you to investigate the writing done in your field/major.  You will write 4-6 pages, formatted according to the citation manual appropriate to your field (MLA, APA, CSE or CMS). You are expected to write about this, not just find/copy/paste the information. You are expected to use a variety of print and online sources, but you MUST also interview 1 person working in your chosen field, AND 1 person teaching in your chosen major. Interviews can be conducted in person or via email, and you must prepare discussion questions and topics in advance. Your ethnography should include the following:

1.       An introduction that tells readers about your field/major, in general, and then specifically what you want to do in that field.

2.      A review of the academic requirements for that goal. What degree, programs, classes, certificates, etc., are required of those in the field? What/where are the best schools for those degrees? What are their requirements to get into those programs (GPA, Standardized tests, etc.)?

3.      After you transfer, what types of writing will you be required to do in order to successfully complete your classes or your degree program? What writing intensive classes will you be required to take for your major (look at the class descriptions for the required classes)? Is there a capstone project or senior project or presentation requirement? If so, what are those requirements?

4.      What are the 2 most important journals in your field? For each, tell readers how often, where/by whom, and in what format (print, digital, etc) they are published, and a description of their readership. Then, for each, look through a current publication and explain the types of articles published in each. Are they profiles, lab reports, studies? What are the topics? How do they correlate to what you’ve learned about in the landmark texts you annotated?  How long are the articles? Are there advertisements? If so, for what? Are the publications in color or black and white? How are they laid out/designed? Finally, explain the process someone must follow in order to submit an article for publication. Where is it submitted (in person, via email, online through a submission link)? Can anyone submit or do you have to be invited to submit? What are the deadlines? Are article submissions peer-reviewed?

5.      What type of writing is done by professionals in your field, outside of academia? What genres or types of writing will you be expected to do in your field after you get your degree? What are the expectations of those genres? Who will be in your primary audience?

6.      Finally, what is the job market like for those seeking employment in the field? Are jobs available? What kind of jobs and at what level? Where are the jobs (in what regions of the country)? Who are the biggest employers for your chosen field? Locate at least 2 job openings in your field and discuss the expectations of those employers, the salary and benefits, and the overall job satisfaction of those working in the field. LinkedIn.com and Glassdoor.com are excellent sources for this information.

7.      A conclusion that summarizes the most important things you found out during this investigation.

8.     A works cited page formatted according to the appropriate citation manual.
