The links below are all content that you will have access to post-graduation. They are great generalized business resources which can provide you with career advice and guidance.
However, another resource to consider is a professional organization in your field. For example, the American Libraries Association offers online mentorship, career advice, and an entire office of Development and Recruitment.
You have been asked to choose a topic relevant to professional communication and choose either a video (e.g., YouTube, TED Talk) or article.
In order to lead a successful discussion on your topic, you may want to examine the Library's business and general databases. While you won't have access to all of this content after graduation, publishers often make some articles available for free.

The Writing Center is staffed by DelVal undergraduate peer tutors who help with writing assignments in all your courses. We view writing as a process that involves planning, reading, drafting, revising, and editing—writing with substance involves discovering your meaning through brainstorming, sharing, and getting lots of feedback.
Tutors help you gain a fresh perspective on the writing process, and can assist with any stage of the process: choosing a topic or working through writer's block, generating ideas, creating an outline, sharpening a thesis, arranging and organizing paragraphs, citing correctly and fluently, editing grammar and mechanics, and more.
Instructors receive a copy of the tutor report completed during the session, to illustrate your engagement with the writing process and meeting the demands of writing across disciplines.
Services are on a walk-in basis, so no appointment is necessary. Schedules are posted in the Writing Center, on Inside DelVal, and on professors' Blackboard course pages.
Tutors look forward to working with you!
