Your initial submission is your final submission and you are not permitted to revise your work.

The application essay should be single spaced and a size 12 font should be used. APA format should be used for all intext citations and the references page. You will write an application essay that includes library research as well as self-exploration. The essay should contain five sections as well as an introduction and a conclusion (each should be 1/4 of a page in length).

  • The introduction should gain the readers attention, address the importance of the topic, and include a preview of what your paper will cover (at least 1/4 page in length).
  1. The first section, based on research from a minimum of five scholarly sources, addresses the importance of listening and the role it plays within a particular profession (my current/future feild is —>{IT/Computer Networks/SAP/Cyber Security}) as well as the kind of listening training conducted in the profession. This section is based solely on research, not your personal perception. All information should be appropriately documented with in-text citations and a references page (bibliography) should be included. This section of your submission should be at least 2 pages in length (minimum).
  2. In section two, you will outline (and explain) a personalized and sophisticated LIST of ten criteria for effective listening behavior. Each item on your list should be numbered and explained in great detail. This section of your submission should be at least 1 page in length (minimum).
  3. In the third section, you will incorporate a descriptive analysis of your listening strengths and weaknesses according to the criteria you outlined in section two. Each criterion should be addressed individually and specifically. This section should be at least 2-3 pages in length (minimum).
  4. In the fourth section, you will provide a summary of your listening-test results. This summary should contain a descriptive analysis and interpretation of each set of results as well as a discussion of your listening strengths and weakness and how your skills have evolved (according to your test results). You should reference your actual overall test scores as well as scores on individual sections. You may use tables to display your data, but I want to see descriptive paragraphs as well. You may use the analyses that you have written throughout the semester to assist you in writing this portion of your paper. This section of your submission should be at least 1 page in length (minimum). Many students greatly exceed the one page requirement, but I am simply looking for a summary.
  5. Finally, the fifth portion of the essay should contain a specific and detailed plan to address your current listening weaknesses (identified in section three AND in section four) and how you plan to continue to improve them. This section of your submission should be 1 page in length (minimum).
  • A conclusion should follow that briefly recaps what you’ve shared and brings closure to your submission (at least 1/4 page in length).
  • The application essay should be well organized with heading and subheadings.
  • Your submission must include in-text citations as well as a references page.
  • This paper should be eight to twelve pages in length (not including the references page).
