Assignment 1: Back from the Future

For this assignment you are to brainstorm the direction you would like your professional life to take over the next ten years and then look back to explain the path your career took. Imagine that we are in the year 2015. When did you graduate from cegep (college)? Did you continue your studies at university after cegep? Did you get a job right away? What kinds of jobs did you have? You may include aspects of your personal life, but this is not necessary. You should, however, include technical descriptions of your professional life. Your entry should be between 200 and 300 words.

Before you start writing brainstorm the ideas you want to include and the select appropriate details. What you leave out is as important as what you put in.

As you write:
* Don't shift your point of view (if you are using "I" don't shift to "you")
* Use transitions to connect sentences and paragraphs smoothly and logically (
therefore, consequently, as soon as, on the other hand, for example, etc.)
* Don’t waste words by saying you don't know what your future will be or that you haven't decided what you want to do. Be creative, but realistic.
* Proofread your entry carefully for verb agreement and spelling.

To make your blog entry more interesting include links to important places in your future (university, workplace, the community where you live)
