You will learn how to do research using library databases and demonstrate literacy skills by producing university caliber documents.
In a correctly formatted three to five-page , single spaced, APA report, describe your chosen profession’s credentials and norms in detail, summarize the case you found that had to do with your profession, and report the long- and short-term impact of this problem on both the profession and the company involved.
This assignment is twofold.
- Each student will study their proposed profession. Research the customary credentials needed to attain professional status (ex: degrees, exams, etc.). Find the professional organization(s) associated with this field of work. Examine the laws or governing bodies associated with the profession.
- Identify a case in which someone transgressed the norms of the profession and caused a problem within their company. For example, accounting fraud at Enron (you can’t use this one). Discuss what important aspects of the profession were impacted by this case. Were laws or credentialing changed due to the outcome of this case?
