In this unit (unit3) it was a little confusing for me to understand the research paper assignment since this assignment is unique it is different than the usual research paper this type of writing called research inquiry, you don’t have to write a research paper, instead, writ what type of problem the research about and who will benefit from such problem, what is a proposed solution. From my point of view, this type of research is more effective and touches the core or the main reason of the research itself.

My general area of study is: The difficulty to get hired
- After doing some preliminary research, I am able to note below at least one argument / discussion / problem that surrounds my area of study: Most of the companies required recent graduate or career shift employee to have long period experience or long internship while it hard to have that.
- The people or community of people most affected by this problem are senior students that looking for internship, recent graduate, and the employee that shift their career.
- Here are some key terms or phrases particularly associated with this issue. “internship” “interview” “ace” “position requirement” “qualification” “degree”
- Here are the sources I have used so far to read about and otherwise learn about this issue. “zipjob” “talent.works” “livecareer” “indeed” “Glassdoor”

I feel that is important to talk about an issue facing students and recent graduate students, which is getting hired in a top-notch company like Lockheed-Martin. This type of companies is hard to get into it even for internship position. Most of the companies prefer to hire a candidate that has long period of training and have done many projects, or through referral, that’s mean the candidates (students) should have good networking or previous training to have a chance to get hired, which is hard for them.
Such discussion would bring many benefits for both sides the candidates and the company. The candidates will know the fact of the hiring process or based on what factors the companies pick their candidates and then they prepare themselves for that fact. While the benefit that the company may gain from such discussion that the hire managers should aware about the problem that faces student and recent graduate, also to put in their consideration that the students having a lack in having networking and also having a lack to have long period training. The hire managers should have another option to consider the candidates.
The companies (the hire managers) should have another option such assign an evaluation project or unpaid training. Choosing the wrong candidate will cost the company a lot, bad reputation and the salary that paid to the wrong candidate. To avoid this problem the company can offer unpaid training then after that evaluate the candidate then choose the right one. I believe this idea will help both sides the candidate and the company. The candidates will have fair and wide opportunities to have the job opportunity. While the companies will choose the right candidate without losing money or reputation
Some of the website that help me to recognize some problems like zipjob website, it shows me how the network is effective in the hiring. Also indeed website help me a lot gathering idea through the comments that the readers post about how hard to get hired.
