Analyze And Reflect On Your Fit For A Career Within This Company

The Final Project is intended to showcase not only
your chapter analyses of your chosen Company but to analyze and reflect on your “fit” for a career within this company.

There should be 10 references (at least, can be more). In addition, all references should be cited in the body of the paper using proper APA formatting.
Organize your paper using these headings and section content:

1. Company Synopsis

Your first task in preparing your Final Project is to study this company during the semester in terms of its management processes--its strategy, mission, goals, structure, human resources practices, etc. The Homework Assignments throughout the semester will help you lay the groundwork for your Final Project.

Much of the company information is available on-line, but you should feel free to use whatever resource, including in-person interviews and library research, to gain as much information that you can about the company. Be sure to keep detailed records of your sources for all this information and follow APA format for the citations within the paper and the Reference List.
In this section, you will create a one- to two-page synopsis of the company you would think you would like to work for.

The whole point of the Final Project is to be able to describe and analyze your chosen company and to demonstrate that you can apply relevant course concepts and models from the course. Therefore, it is not enough to just give the history and background of your company in this section.

2. Needed Skills and Abilities

Based on your company research and analysis, describe the skills and abilities likely desired by this company. Much of this information can be obtained directly from company websites but can also be inferred from the strategy and structure of the organization. Given a particular business strategy, what kinds of skills and abilities will be most prized in this company? This section should be approximately a half-page in length.

3. Gap Analysis/Action Plan

The next step is to do an honest inventory of your current skills and abilities. This part of the paper is not designed to persuade the company that you are the best possible candidate for the job, but rather is the basis for developing an action plan for becoming the best possible candidate. So, for example, if you find that entry-level positions at an accounting firm require a degree in accounting and a 3.0-grade point average, that will not be sufficient. What will distinguish you from the thousands of other students graduating with a degree in accounting with a 3.0-grade point average? How will you separate yourself from the rest?

This part of the paper is thus to define the “gap” between what the company would want from its top candidate, and what you currently have in your bundle of skills and abilities. In doing so, there needs to be some discussion that explains your gap analysis table. In particular, you need to give a detailed description of your past job experiences as they relate to the specific skills and abilities required for your chosen job. You will also describe the evidence you could present to the company that you have achieved some of the needed competencies.

Once you have done this, create a plan outlining what you are going to do between now and when you go out on the job market to acquire the skills and abilities that you will need to become the company’s most attractive recruit. As with your gap analysis, avoid simplistic statements such as “get my degree in accounting.” Think in terms of skills, abilities, and competencies rather than majors, courses, or job titles. This second part of the section represents an action plan for obtaining the competencies necessary to be the most attractive candidate applying to your chosen company and should be a half-page to a page in length. The combined section should be two to three pages in length.

4. References

Include a Reference List with at least 10 references. Referencing multiple pages from the same organization’s web site only counts as one citation (e.g., Apple.com). When using more than one page from the same company, provide a URL that links to the home page or entry page for the

Also, if there isn't a date available for the document use (n.d.) for no date. All citations in the reference list should be cited in the body of your paper (use APA style guidelines).
Please include a title page.
