3.Is there any particular opportunity that you imagine applying for now or upon graduation? If so, which one? Why?
After you post, please review your classmates’ posts.

Your response to your peers should address something that catches your attention in your classmate’s post. For example, you might share similar career interests with someone. Or you might be surprised by something you learn in a classmates’ post. You might offer some advice to a classmate about the particular position they wish to pursue.
Additionally, you are welcome to, encouraged even, to respond to additional classmates. This should be a conversation.
What is a Discussion Activity?

Similar to live class discussions, you will be able to respond to other students enrolled in your class mostly through writing, unless otherwise prompted.
What is the point of Discussion Activities?

Please see the syllabus for details on grading.
