Career Planning Assignment

Career Planning Assignment

As you get closer to graduation, you’re probably a little anxious about finding a job. Don’t worry, you’re not alone. This assignment is designed to help lessen this anxiety. While the assignment isn’t all encompassing, I hope it will help you feel more confident looking at job opportunities. For this assignment, you will discover healthcare administration jobs that you find interesting. The assignment is designed to help you start thinking about your future and where you want to go. You’ll also think about the steps you have to take to get to these stages – Will you need additional education? Will you need to gain experience using a specific skillset? (for more information on healthcare administration career see this website & search healthcare administration ) (writer please pick jobs located in Los Angeles, California) (writer please note that when I graduate I will only have a bachelors in healthcare administration.) (make sure I fit the job descriptions)


The assignment is split into 3 different parts to mirror three different stages of your career:

Part 1 – The first job you analyze will be one you could apply for right after graduation.(ex:entry level positions or paid internships)

Part 2 – The second job will be one you could apply for in 5-10 years. (ex:supervisor)

Part 3 – The last job will be one that you could envision having in 20+ years.(ex: middle manager)


For each job, you will write a 2-3 page summary (typed, double-spaced, with 12 point Times New Roman font, and 1-inch margins) that address each of the following questions/categories:

  1. Print version of the job opportunity (writer please provide link to job listing)
