Plot your career direction based on each step in this roadmap.  For step #1 you should look at where you are now (what industry, job, position, etc.).  Also answer where you want to go (industry, job, position, salary, etc.) from here.
For step #2, I would like you to go online and explore various job announcements and position descriptions to see what you need (what experience, degree, certification, interest, passion, etc.). In this context, I also would like you to state how pursuing this degree, and this course specifically, is a tool for the career direction in which you are going.
Then for step #3, do you know anyone who might be a mentor; are you pursuing opportunities to network with like-mined professionals, etc.
Finally, for step #4, is there some short-term deviation from your goal that you would accept – what is it?

It should take just a short paragraph that address each of the four steps mentioned above.  As I have always mentioned, do not cut and paste information from other sources – I want  your  view and in  your  words.    As your reader, I want to be able to follow whatever sources you use, so support your views (and findings) with  at least two in-text citations . This means you will also need a reference list. For this assignment (only), a url  reference is acceptable (not usually acceptable for APA).
