Class Project, Fall 1999: "Succeeding in Your Professions"

Q: What does it take to get a good job in your academic field or profession?

Our survey says: Good communication!

Are there jobs in your profession waiting for you out there in "the real world?" Do you know what it takes to make yourself qualified for entry into your field? Do you know what the work itself actually entails? Do you know what it takes to advance in your field? Here are some of the answers to some of those questions, carefully researched from print, electronic and personal sources. Some of the commmon elements these researchers found out: to get a job in almost any profession takes a certain amount of knowledge of the field; but to advance requires good reading, writing, speaking, listening and computing skills. Whodathunkit?
