Think about the ideal job that you would like to have. Describe this job, qualifications needed, required work experience, the kind of manager to whom you would like to report, and the kind of organization in which you would like to work. Answer the following questions:
- What would be your levels of expectancy? Which outcomes would have high valence for you on this job?
- What steps would your manager need to take to make sure you feel that you were being equitably treated? What would you do, if after a year on the job, you experienced inequity in pay?
- What goals would you strive to achieve in order to be a most effective employee? What role would your manager play in determining your goals and assist you in achieving these goals?
- What behaviors, skills, and abilities would your manager need to develop and reinforce so that the department and company can be successful?
Journals should be between 400 and 500 words (or more if needed). Write your answers in paragraph form. In other words, include an introduction (e.g.: describe the job), four (4) supporting paragraphs (one paragraph for each question), and a conclusion. In your conclusion, reflect upon what would be the most important element of this ideal job and the support you would need from your manager in order to be successful.
