Section 1: Overview of roles possible for construction graduates
Construction is a diverse field with many possibilities. Students are to research and discuss some common professions that may be undertaken by a construction graduate. You should provide a brief description of each of the positions you choose and briefly discuss some of their day-to-day duties.
Section 2: Case study of one specific industry role
In this section you will be required to develop a case study of the particular construction profession that interests you the most. The case study should include at least the following information:
1. Job title
2. Responsibilities and outline of what the daily routine could look like
3. Essential skills / qualities
4. Required qualification/certification/membership
5. Pay scales
6. Good and not so good things about the job, and/or challenges
Section 3: Personal reflection on why you wish to pursue a career as the role you identified in Section 2
In this section students are required to write a personal reflection on the particular role you identified .
The purpose is for you to explore why you are interested in this particular role and whether you think it is the right type of job for you. You may use the following suggestions in guiding your reflection:
What interests you about the job?
Why do you think you would be suited to that particular job?
What challenges would you face in the job?
How would it extend and develop you as a professional?
Remember that while this section is a personal reflection, and therefore use of the first person pronoun ‘I’ is acceptable, you are still writing academically for an assessment. Take care that your expression is not too much like casual speech and that you pay attention to spelling as well as sentence and paragraph structure.
