CASE STUDY 10: A Job for Laurie

Note: This is not a paper. All I need is to answer the questions. Clear and short.CASE STUDY 10: A Job for LaurieLaurie Willer has a bachelor’s degree in marketing and has just graduated with an MPA in public affairs from a top ranked school. To earn money during her undergraduate years, Laurie worked part time every summer as a claims processor at the Department of Workforce Development. She also worked an internship at Lilly Pharmaceutical Company during her undergraduate senior year. Both jobs had been interesting, but Laurie particularly liked working at the Department of Workforce Development. Although her work there as a claims processor was monotonous at times, she felt a sense of reward helping people find jobs. In fact, it was that satisfaction that led Laurie to start on her master’s degree and to consider a different career path. With her MPA now in hand, Laurie has to think seriously about her career. Looking over the jobs posted at the University Career Center Laurie is still not sure what she is looking for in a career. On the bulletin board she reads over job descriptions for openings in three different positions, one in government, one for a Nonprofit organization, and one large For-profit company.Discussion QuestionsAs you read through the job postings, consider the following:What types of individuals are attracted to each of these jobs?
