question 1 : Background: Read the article at the link below by Nicole Fallon “Destination Dream Job”. Pay close attention to the roadmap outlined in the article about career progression.
Fallon outlines 4 steps that one needs to take to reach their career goal (see link below). Career experts have also shared their advice for mapping out a path to one’s ultimate
dream job. Those steps include: (1) Know where you want to go, (2) Focus on the tools you need, (3) Find a guide, and (4) Be open to changing your route.
Your assignment :
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. The background and online research for this assignment can be done collectively
in your group. However, the findings must be specific for you individually and so your post must be individual. 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).
question2 : Background: As noted by Kirk (2019), working with data, is one of the four stages of the visualization workflow. According to Kirk (2019), “A dataset is a collection of data values
upon which a visualization is based.” In this course, we will be using datasets that have already been collected for us – some cleaning has been done also. Data can be collected by various
Reference: Kirk, Andy. Data Visualization: A Handbook for Data Driven Design (pp. 95 -117). SAGE Publications.
Write and submit a paper that summarizes 3 data collection techniques (Interviews, Surveys, Observations, Focus Groups, etc.). Compare and contrast the 3 data collection
techniques you selected. Lastly, what collection techniques do you prefer and why?
Your paper should be at least 2 pages (800 words), double-spaced, have at least 2 different APA references, and typed in an easy-to-read font in
MS Word (other word processors are fine to use but save it in MS Word format). Your cover page should contain the following: Title, Student’s name, University’s name,
Course name, Course number, Professor’s name, and Date. This is an individual assignment which must be accomplished by you alone.
