Journal response. In Weeks 3-7 you were directed to keep a professional work journal
(Please refer to Week 2 for a review of instructions). Now you will review your work
journal entries and arrange some of them into an draft. The draft will reflect upon those
five (5) weeks of experiences recorded in your journal and what you have learned.
Include how they may have furthered your career or caused you to rethink your career
goals. Your draft should include your experiences, observations, and the key concepts
based on the internship and business course experience.
Your draft should be formatted in APA style. Include at least two (2) peer-reviewed
sources related to course material taken in your academic program and scholarly
Reminder About Journaling: Whether you want to be able to look back at where you
started, set a future state for yourself and seek a new path, or just deal with present
issues, journaling helps you do that in a reflective way. You need not write every day.
Journaling gives you a place to better understand yourself, to plan your goals, and to
follow-up on goals. One pitfall of journaling is that it can become part of a log of your
feelings for any one day and you want to avoid these types of emotional responses.
