The first part of the course project involves  researching interesting jobs in your chosen career field and the skills you need to attain this job. Use the Course Project Part 1 document as a guideline to complete this phase of the Course Project assignment. This submission is due Week 5.

    2. Type into the search criteria a career you are interested in (i.e.,  “biomedical engineering”, “software developer”, “network engineer”).
    3. You can include other relevant words, like lifelong learning or even a job title that you may be already interested in.
    4. Identify and document three job designations that you are interested in.

Part 2
