1. Read the audiotranscript
with a partner or change some of the information to adapt it to
Write a paragraph outlining your career objectives following advanced
study. View the accompanying Power Point presentation on details
of how to write this paragraph.
3. Write four questions
beginning with "Why" when asking someone to describe
their career objectives, and then answer them. The question does
not have to come directly from the listening exercise.
Example: Why does Richard want to complete a masters degree program
in Strategic Management from the University of Florida and then
return to Taiwan?
Answer: So that he can make a more significant contribution than
he would be able to do without further academic training
Example: Why did you decide to work in the medical profession?
Answer: Because I enjoy working closely with others.
