#Reflection Paper Assignment: As you prepare for the career fair or your next steps in your career, consider your experiences from the option you completed, and in your reflection paper discuss your job/career search strategy. How do you plan to identify career opportunities for which you will apply? How do you plan to use your networks to connect to career opportunities? What message do you want employers to receive about your skills and abilities? How will you communicate that message to them? What was the most important thing you learned from completing the option you selected?
