Career Management Recommendation Proposal

Imagine you are an HR associate. Your task is to make a recommendation to your corporations’ CEO to establish a Career Management Program (this can be the CEO of your company, or of a hypothetical company).

The recommendation should be focused on a specific topic that is relevant to the organization and would enhance it through implementation of your proposal. The Career Management Recommendation should be of sufficient length to cover the subject, but thorough in your answers.

Include numbers, such as budget, put them in; they do not need to be fact based.

You also should have at least five (5) peer-reviewed sources to support some points made (why your proposed action is valid, the problem you’ve identified, etc.). Be sure to add appendices to strengthen and support your recommendation

Paper must be at least 8 to 10 pages APA format… all the following points must be addressed

The components of your recommendation are as follows:

  • Recommendation
    A clear, concise summary of exactly what you are recommending.
  • Justification
    In general terms, why do you recommend this action. This section should summarize the key reasons for your recommendation.

    – What published survey results are available?
    – Have you done a survey of company employees?
    – What do the survey results tell you?
  • Timing:
    – How quickly must the issue be resolved?

    Appendices (include: samples of forms used, for example, a sample announcement to all employees, a survey form, etc.; you can either make these up or find ones to add as these make your proposal stand out)

Think of this as a business recommendation; it is easier to write in a proposal format. Be sure to cite per APA requirements and include both a cover and reference page.
