Paper Assignment:

 

Research  careers/job areas in human services. In addition to your text and the following website: http://www.bls.gov/ooh/ (Occupational Outlook Handbook), each career. This means look up material from other sources for each of the five careers you research. Sources should be credible (not blogs and not Wikipedia.) You may use a personal interview with someone in the field if you have access/time to do so. If you interview someone, paraphrase what they say instead of copying it word-for-word in your paper. I want to see you own actual processing and writing with citations.
