AIM: The aim of this assignment is to demonstrate your literature search skills and your ability to critically engage with what you have researched. You should access a range of materials before linking them together to represent the current situation in the preferred discipline you are researching.
There is only one title and the work is required to be original and in your own words rather than using extensive quotes. However, you must ensure that all sources are credited and referenced appropriately (surname, year) in the text with a full listing on your Reference List in the Harvard Referencing System.
The title for your first coursework is:
The effects of Social Media on UK Employment
To carry out this task you will be required to use a range of sources including, for instance, academic journal articles and quality press. Several electronic search engines (e.g. Google Scholar or Library Search- there is a quick video on You Tube about how to find articles using Library Search https://youtube.com/watch?v=z9Y3LRHbaTY ) can be used. Use more than one search engine and do not use Wikipedia. You must ensure that all sources are credited and referenced appropriately (surname, year) in the text with a full listing on your Reference List in the Harvard Referencing System
