Professions Exploration Assignment
Through the Business-Link Professions Program (BLPP), students will begin developing a network of contacts starting in their freshman year. After attending the Making Success a Habit (Workshop #1), students will complete the Professions Exploration assignment (course BINT 10400).
The Professions Exploration assignment allows students to explore a career path of interest by conducting an interview with a professional. The student is expected to contact an individual within their selected profession and conduct an informational interview based on questions provided during Making Success a Habit (Workshop #1). Upon completion of the interview, students will write up a reflection and submit it to the Business-Link Professions Program office for review and grading.
