The intent of this project is to research and create a presentation on a career you are interested in. Youwill either compare two similar careers, like LPN versus RN, or you will research one career at 2 different post secondary institutions. Note: the report and presentation are separate entities. The presentation should be developed from the report.
·2 similar careers
·1 career at 2 different post secondary institutions
2.Research and Data Collection:
Find at least 3 reliable sources to gather data. Collection of data must include, but is notlimited to the following:
➢Education needed for your career choice:
oWhat high school courses and grades do I need?
oWhat is the total cost for this certificate or degree? (provide a detailed description ofhow you calculated this cost – do not estimate)
oAny other certifications needed? Extra costs?
oHow likely am I to get a job when I graduate?
oHow much will I earn when I have no experience?
oHow much can I expect to earn once I have experience?
oWhat are the physical conditions of the workplace and physical demand?
oWhat are the interpersonal relationships, such as working with people who arehostile or dangerous, regular public speaking, etc.?
oWhat are the structural job characteristics, such as job performance expectations, theconsequences of making a mistake, latitude of independent decision making, etc?
Use the data you found to create a minimum of 3 graphs that help to clarify the trends. These graphs cannot be copied from other sources, and the data used to build them mustbe included in your submission. A good graph illustrates a point you are trying to make,is clearly labeled, and appropriately represents the situation. Graphs should not be hand drawn.
4.Create Visual Presentation (PowerPoint, Google Slides or Prezi):
A good visual presentation includes a clearly stated research question, and rationale for choosing it. Each slide should support a specific aspect of that question and include bullet points to help keep you on track in the oral part of your presentation. Ensure that you have a clear conclusion.
Provide a script that details the additional information for your oral presentation/ video.This should be in a separate document that clearly shows what needs to be said to address the content of each slide.
6.References and Citations:
Include a reference list end of your presentation. Within each slide provide a citation to show the specific source for any information included on that slide. All sources must becited using APA formatting. Use the site http://www.citationmachine.net/ to create your citations or use the format listed below.
