Step 2 Undertake research of the recent academic literature since 2010, to identify five (5) academic peer reviewed journal articles relevant to the Assessment 3 Essay topic (and preferably aligned to Weeks 3-5 on job design, HR planning, recruitment and selection).

Step 3. For each journal article, you are to write 2 paragraphs within a total of approximately 400 words.

For Assessment 2, you selected a sector to study (e.g. agriculture; construction; financial services; health care; hospitality; manufacturing; mining; retail; transport).

You will write an essay on the key challenges in attracting and retaining a workforce in your selected sector.

Your essay will draw on at least five themes from Week 1 to Week 11 of this unit, being those most relevant to your selected industry sector.

Your essay will draw on the academic literature (including the annotated bibliography you developed for Assessment 2), and develop an argument applying that literature to your selected sector.

You must cite at least ten (10) relevant peer reviewed journal articles, and 3 chapters from the Kramar textbook. You can cite other academic references such as books, conference papers, and book chapters but these will NOT be counted as part of the 10 journal articles.
