This application paper describes how some of the important concepts from this course apply to your professional life. This paper should be written with your current situation in mind and looking forward, but not applying the courses concepts retrospectively to a past situation. Basically, the paper will address the questions of what have you learned in the course and how will you apply it.
Among the questions you should address in this paper are:
– What have you learned during this course?
– What are the most relevant concepts from the course to you?
– What from this course has made an impact on you professionally over the past three months as you have progressed through this course?
– Knowing what you know after taking this course, what will you do differently from now on?
As you answer these questions, be as specific as possible. Dont just say, I found the various models of talent management to be relevant. Write specifically about how you would apply a certain model to a situation. Feel free to discuss any aspect of the course like readings.
The important criteria in this paper are application and specificity. Your success in this paper will depend not only on how well you demonstrate an understanding of concepts but on how well you can apply them to real-world situations. The more specificity you bring to your discussion, the better the application will be. However, as this is a highly personal paper, it is acceptableand advisableto write in the first-person. Think of this paper as telling a storya personal one about you and your work.
