Discuss how your current skills, knowledge, and education, as well as the certificate or degree you are currently pursuing through Central Piedmont (CPCC), will prepare or equip you to succeed in each role/employment opportunity.


INTRODUCTION: While the Inquiry Rational paper was the opportunity for students to begin to critically think about future career and higher education opportunities from a broad perspective, the Project Report is a more in-depth exploration and point of discovery toward a focused plan of action for each student’s future in career and business. The purpose of the Project Report is to address the findings from internet-based research that will help form the basis of your career and education major decisions toward seeking employment (this includes career advancement or a career change) and pursuing advanced business students at the university level. Within the report students will discuss the business knowledge gained from this course and discuss self-reflective discovery as it relates to learning styles and personality assessments. Most importantly, students will discuss results from their focused exploration of employment opportunities.

Within the Project Report students will address the following:

Career and Business Job Search

  1. Prospective Employers
  • Use one of the following sources to conduct an online job search engine to locate three jobs from three different organizations which align with your preferred career/area of focus. Work to make clear connections to the careers/areas of focus you discussed in the Inquiry Rationale paper.

Also use the Browse Programs tool of Career Coach to research potential degrees that will best compliment your intended/future career pursuits. Keep notes of your findings as the information will need to be incorporated as part of the Career and Business Project Report.
