Part One (Due Week 6) Table of Contents and Introduction, I would like both careers to be in the technology field or something else. I need an introduction and a table of contents. Thank you!
ENGL 227 Formal Report  In this assignment, students will work independently to write a short formal report that analyzes a situation  and provides recommendations.  This course project will satisfy TCOs 6   and 12 Overview Formal Report Topic Part One (Due Week 6) Table of Contents and Introduction Part Two (Due Week 7) Formal Report in Full How the Formal Report Assignment is Graded Overview In this assignment, students will analyze two possible career choices, and then write a formal analytical  report effectively presenting a recommendation to pursue one of the careers. This project has two parts:  Part one, the Table of Contents and Introductory Section, is due at the end of week 6.  Part two, the report in its entirety, is due at the end of week 7.  Students are encouraged to begin work on the course project no later than week 5, reading the  project directions, reading Chapters 13, 14, and 15, and, if time permits, doing preliminary  research.    Formal Report Topic This assignment is based on Case  Number 4 on page 490 of chapter 15,  Picking the better path:  Research report assisting a client in a career choice.  Important:  Please take note of the additional  instructions here, as the case has been modified to suit our class objectives. Here’s the situation:  You work for Open Options, a career-counseling firm, where your main function is  to help clients make career choices. Read and follow the directions on page 490 in chapter 15. Your  report should include the following: Information from a client interview (interview yourself) A comparison of at least five major areas, such as education requirements, salary expectations,  etc.  Research from at least two credible sources to inform the client and to support the  recommendation

Research Help As the case states, you will need to compare five major areas for each career option. Online sources are acceptable for this assignment, but only if they are credible. Recommended websites include The Occupational Outlook Handbook , published by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics ( http://www.bls.gov/oco ) and Salary.com ( http://www.salary.com ). Do NOT use Wikipedia or websites of questionable quality. If you have doubts about a source, or if you need help locating sources, please contact your instructor.   Formatting Help View this week’s tutorial, which will show you how to use the outline view of MS Word to  create a table of contents. Using the outline view will make formatting your table of  contents and report  much  simpler than formatting the entire TOC manually! Notice that there are slight differences between formal  reports  and formal  proposals When referring to chapters 13-16, make sure you refer to the passages that pertain to  formal  reports . APA citations for all researched information (in-text parenthetical citations and a reference list at  the end of the report) Formal report formatting You will need to conduct outside research about career choices and salaries for this report, and you  will need to cite your sources using APA citations. Conclude the formal report by making a  recommendation for the client (you) to pursue one of the two careers you research. Your report  MUST be formatted as a formal report.  Part One (Due Week 6) Table of Contents and Introduction Your assignment this week is to write your formal report’s table of contents and introduction, using formal  formatting. To complete this assignment, you will need to have a good plan in place for your formal report.  I encourage you to use the three-step process we’ve been studying this session. (The formal report is due  in its entirety at the end of week 7. In week 6, only the table of contents and introduction are due.)
