Career exploration and discovery



The purpose of this assessment is to select a journal article and to learn from it with respect to your own career wishes and desires. Your job is to: identify issues, gather data, analyze the forces at play in a journal article that is related to career development and recommend appropriate courses of action that will benefit your career.


How to proceed and write a Journal Article Review


In this assessment the objective is to, “…build learner capacity to identify, gather, summarise and reference academic

research papers related to the discipline of business.”


The way you can think about this is that you will be taking another person’s text and:


1.  understand it,

2.  summarize it, and

3.  write in your own words your opinion about that text and whether it impacts or is influential with respect to your career.


Keep in mind that YOUR opinion matters as much as does the author who wrote the text. You are reviewing their work! They are not reviewing YOUR work!


Now, how do you write this?

 1.  Pick a journal (say 10 pages) that is about career development or the career you want to have when you graduate from Holmes.

2.  To get an idea of what the topic is about, “look at the abstract”! Read it very carefully.

3.  WARNING! Don’t start writing until you are fully aware of what the journal article is about.

4.  Read through the article and extract and write a summary of the main points of the article. Write them on a separate piece of paper.

5.  Make certain that supporting facts to the main points are also summarized. If you see words you do not understand just use your dictionary!

6.  Read through the article AGAIN you should really understand the article now.

  7.  Go back to # 4 above and expand the summary of the main points that you have written – and any facts that were used to support them. BUT, this is a summary of the author’s arguments, thoughts and views – NOT YOURS!

  8.  Remember! Use short and simple sentences such as:

“The author thinks that there are strong career opportunities in XXXX.”

“ He also thinks that there are not many opportunities in the banking industry.”


So, in summary short sentences not more than 10 words to a sentence!


9.  OK, now you should understand what the article is about as you have summarized the main points and have created some paragraphs about the main points.



So, you can NOW start to express your main thoughts using this structure:



  Title – keep it short and interesting, e.g. “Career opportunities in the IT industry in XXX”

  Citation, please use Holmes Institute adapted Harvard referencing

  •  Introduction,use it to simply state the main points of the argument. If there are 4 main points then simply speak about these in 4 short sentences–remember less than 10 words per sentence. So,in total it will be about 40 words.

  Your opinion, go back to #7 and use that expanded summary to discuss what your opinion is of the author’s ideas. This is YOUR opportunity to say what YOU THINK! Write in your own words, maximum of 10 words to a line and maximum of 4 sentences to a paragraph.

  Critique, this is your chance to say what you think of what the author said. Is it reasonable or unreasonable? So, you could say, “The author is disappointed about banking employment. (7 words) But he does not offer evidence.” (6 words).

  Summary statement, keep this short but summarize the articles main points and your critique of them

  PROOFREAD, make certain all grammar, spelling, upper & lower cases are correct. Also count the words in your sentences – keep around 10 words per line.

 Assessment Citation and Referencing



Holmes has implemented a revised Harvard approach to referencing. The following rules apply:

1.  Reference sources in assignments are limited to sources that provide full-text access to the

source’s content for lecturers and markers.

2.  The reference list must be located on a separate page at the end of the essay and titled:


3.  The reference list must include the details of all the in-text citations, arranged A-Z alphabetically by author surname with each reference numbered (1 to 10, etc.) and each reference MUST include a hyperlink to the full text of the cited reference source.

For example:

8. Hawking, P., McCarthy, B. & Stein, A. 2004. Second Wave ERP Education, Journal of Information Systems Education, Fall, 4. All assignments must include in-text citations to the listed references. These must include the surname of the author/s or name of the authoring body, year of publication, page number of the content, and paragraph where the content can be found. For example, “The company decided to implement an enterprise-wide data warehouse business intelligence strategy (Hawking et al., 2004, p3(4)).”


Non-Adherence to Referencing Rules



Where students do not follow the above rules, penalties apply:

       students who submit assignments that do not comply with all aspects of the rules, a 10% penalty will be applied.

       Students who comply with rules BUT contain ‘fake’ citations will be reported for academic misconduct.
