Step by Step Instructions are in your ENGL 1010 LibGuide. Click on the link below.

Under Step 1 the instructions are to look at the Occupational Outlook Handbook for a description of a job in your field. Write down keywords that describe the job, job duties and work environment.

You will then use the keywords in the search box in ProQuest. For example if you are in the Medical Assistant program a search might be for "medical assitant*" and EHR and WC(1000-1500). This would provide you with articles on medical assistant(s) and electronic health records with your word count range of 1000-1500 words.

Be sure to follow all of the steps in the Step by Step instructions to limit by word count and narrow by date range.
