1) Career Exploration Memo Research a job position/career you are interested in and prepare a memorandum to me which identifies the position/career and provides information on: work environment; duties involved; requirements in terms of skills, education, work experience; salary range, opportunities (is field expected to experience a decrease or increase in job opportunities). Page 2 of memo should be a reference page (APA Format) of resource(s) used in research. Even if your overall goal is to own a business, you should focus on building the skills you will need (managerial, financial, marketing, etc.) and start to build networks in the industry you want to enter into. Therefore, explore a position/title that will allow you to start networking.
