You are going to college because it is relevant to the career you want to pursue. What is this career? Research and describe the social and economic characteristics of your profession: What type of people does it employ (gender, race, education, etc.)? What are the typical conditions of employment (pay, unions, stability, etc.)? How is this profession doing today in the economy, in your state, and in the U.S. as a whole (unemployment, location, projections, etc.)? What are the major issues it is facing? Then, think about how you chose this career and what the information you just presented means for you in this profession in the future. Whenever appropriate, link the information you present to concepts, theories, facts, and core values of “community and social justice” from the course.
