A paper has three main parts: Introduction with thesis, body and conclusion. To address this assignment, you need first to choose your particular job or industry. Since I am a teacher, I will choose education, or teaching, as your example. Model your paper, with your chosen job or industry, after this example.

First, your posting does not specify any formatting protocol that you are expected to use (MLA, APA, etc.). If this does not matter, you can format your paper using standard academic writing: choose a simple font like Times New Roman, and font size 12.

To impress your teacher, I would include one or two references. You can always delete them if they are not allowed. Your sample paper begins with title page:

Education: A Recession-Proof Industry
