For this assignment I have selected two organizations. I searched Google for jobs with different keywords that were related to my field of study and it came up with many results. Following is a detailed account of how are these organizations related to my courses and how would they benefit me in developing a career.
USAID (Non-Profit Organization)
USAID is one of the largest humanitarian organization in the world. The organization is active in many parts of the world. The organization recruits a variety of people from all over the world to work at its offices and in the field. I would really love to work for this organization when I have finished my studies. I believe that there are higher chances for me to pursue a successful career in the developmental sector if get a chance to be part of the USAID. I visited their website and in the following discussion I will shed some light on how I think the organizational activities are relevant to my courses. As part of my studies, I have to attend the Business Communication Course. USAID helps many countries in developing an infrastructure for small businesses (“Economic Growth and Trade | U.S. Agency for International Development,” n.d.). I believe that the course that I mentioned will help me become an integral part of USAID as I will be able to develop my business communication skills and then use them while being a part of the projects that deal with businesses. Other course that will help me understand different standards of business is Business Law. This will be useful to get acquainted with the legal framework that is applied to businesses and how non-profit organizations like USAID interact with these businesses. As USAID is helping countries develop their economies (“Economic Growth and Trade | U.S. Agency for International Development,” n.d.), I believe that the course, Principles of Macroeconomics will help be understand the economic growth of a country and the factors effecting it.
The most important course that I think will be helpful for me as a USAID employ is International Management. The course deals with understanding to function as part of international teams. At current USAID is working on different projects in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Africa, Europe, Middle East and many other parts of the world (“Where We Work | U.S. Agency for International Development,” n.d.). I believe that it is important to be well aware of working in an international environment due to the fact that the organization is dealing in international projects which would most definitely have project teams from a diverse cultural background.
iQuest Partners (Profitable Organization)
I visited the website and at current there are many jobs that have been offered on their job opening page that are of my interest (“Job Board | iQuest Partners” n.d.). The one that is most attractive to me is in the field of business development. I have browsed the website for the different business activities iQuest is involved in. The organization helps people develop small businesses by working with the decision makers at these businesses (“What we do | iQuest Partners” n.d.). The activities of iQuest are most relavent to my Business Communication, Business Law and Principles of Accounting courses. If I am a part of iQuest or any such kind of organization in the future, I will have to be good at communicating with the owners and decision makers that may involve me to find plausible solutions to the problems that the organization wants iQuest to solve. I also believe that when you are working with an organization to develop its organizational activities, you have to be aware of the business law related to these activities to avoid any legal complications. I don’t plan to be an accounting expert, but still it is definitely a useful took to get acquainted to when it comes to understand the business transactions of a company and its assets and liabilities.
