You will create a professional planning portfolio that contains a Core section—completed by all students—and either an Employment section or a Graduate School section, depending upon your post-baccalaureate plans. The final section of your portfolio will be a copy of your review paper, which has been corrected according to the feedback you received from your instructor.
The portfolio will be 7 to 10 pages, double-spaced, not including the expected title, reference pages and Career Review Paper. APA format is expected and you must reference yourself when quoting from past papers. Only academic/scholarly sources should be used. Please only include one title page for the reflection portion of the portfolio and one for the revised Career Review Paper.
The Core section will contain the following documents:

Please combine these documents into one file. There are multiple ways to combine the documents:-Copy and paste your information or use the following links
Information about your Letter of Recommendation
You do not need to write one of your professors for this assignment. Rather, this letter will be used as a template for such a letter if you need to ask for a recommendation later. Consider it a form letter.
In the letter you will be asking a professor if they would recommend you for graduate school, some professional training program or certification program, or for employment. You decide which kind of letter you need or that would be of most benefit to you right now.
-Choose a program or job from your search. You only need to complete one letter for this assignment (I understand that the rubric states 3).
-Provide your complete name (and nickname if the professor knows you by that), along with your email address, and complete mailing address.
-Be sure to include the name of the position or program (along with the school, etc) for which you are applying.
-And let the professor know the date the recommendation is due.
-You should let the professor know what classes you have taken with them, in what year and semester, your grade, and anything you did in the class that you would like to point out, i.e., maybe a paper, or you led a discussion on some topic of interest, or perhaps something you really enjoyed about the class.
-Let the professor know your area of interest and why you are interested in this, i.e., your goals, future plans, etc.
-Let your professor know your current status, and planned date of graduation.
Of course the specifics in the letter would change depending on the professor and class, and area of interest, and program or job for which you are applying, but you would have a good start on the letter, and you would know what kind of things to include.
If you have already done this, then you can borrow some of that information from an email you have written your professor. But as this is a graded assignment, make sure that you have the necessary information. You will not send this template to your professors.
