The questions should inquire about the interviewee’s job responsibilities, academic preparation for entry into the field including course work and practical hands-on training, on-the-job training and experience, satisfaction with the job and work environment, and recommendations to anyone considering entering the field. These questions will be submitted to the instructor for approval prior to the end of week 3.
Professional Associations Review and Report
(Addresses Course Objective 1)
For this assignment, research each of the organizations below and write a one and a half page summary of its purpose/function/benefits and the resources it offers to members and to the general public (if available). For each organization, be sure to indicate if they have a profession-specific code of ethics.
NOTE: These five brief papers must contain paraphrases of organization website content with proper APA in-text citations and a References page. DO NOT copy content directly from the sites (the latter constitutes plagiarism and will void the assignment points and result in a course grade of “F” if multiple instances are detected).
As with other written assignments, all work must be in compliance with university academic standards and formatting rules of the American Psychological Association (APA) – 6th Edition.
