Using the Assignment Rubric listed below for the specific grading criteria, complete the following:

Throughout the course, you have been tasked with selecting, researching, and writing a paper on the Human 
Resource Management (HRM) topic of your choice. You were encouraged to select a topic you found 
interesting or one that was relevant to your current or future career. It is generally more enjoyable and thus 
successful when you focus on research for a topic you personally find interesting and relevant to you. 
There are three assignments throughout the seven weeks to help you complete the course topic paper. 
They are:

• Step 1: Topic Proposal (Was due Week 2)
• Step 2: Topic Paper Outline (Due this week)
• Step 3: Topic Paper (Due Week 6)
For this week's assignment, in a word document, such as Microsoft Word, you will provide an outline of your 
Topic Paper using a full-sentence outline format. Here, you should demonstrate that progress has been made 
on the course project, and that your research is well underway.

Be sure to provide a list of references you have identified as useful (remember you will need to
have a minimum of five for the final paper). Your outline should follow all APA formatting guidelines 
(including title page and references) and should also demonstrate writing expected of college-level 
graduate students.
