Select a company in which you would like to learn more about during this term. You will
use this Company Blog for your Final Project in Units 7 and 8, so choose a company
you find interesting. Also consider, in making your choice, a company that you can
easily access information on. You will create a Blog (+/-2 pages per assignment) in
which you will post information that you research and report on in each Blog.
1. Each person must select a different company – first-come-first-served. Email
your instructor with your company selection before you begin your blog. You
need instructor approval of it before you begin.
2. You must be able to obtain company information: strategy, goals, financials, etc.
3. Your initial post should provide a brief overview of your selected organization.
For each Blog assignment, you are required to make the following posts:
1. Your data, analysis, and commentary – collected data can be news reports,
Facebook postings, first-hand accounts, videos/pictures from a visit – almost
anything, and any source can be used.
2. Your comments and observations on your data – which is really the important
part of this assignment. You are encouraged to select a company that you can
visit in-person or virtually (web-based). You will be required to gather first-hand
reconnaissance. The Blog post should generally relate to subject matter for that
3. Your classmates will view your Blog and make comments on your postings. Each
student is required to make two follow-up comments.
Blog post must be at least 4 well-crafted paragraphs in length.
All questions posed must be addressed.
All sources used must be properly cited in APA format.
