* do not use any internet source!!!!!!!!!!! It is not allowed in this class. You must use the primary source as the book â€œBait and Switchâ€ by Barbara Ehrenreich and analyze carefully and you can only use the article and the book as references that I write now: â€œThe confidence Gapâ€ by KATTY KAY AND CLAIRE SHIPMAN, and the book â€œThe Beauty Biasâ€ by Deborah Rhode(you can only use Chapter 5).***The requirement is that we have continued to explore the concept of self-fashioning, paying close attention to how people in
â€œtransitionâ€ are often tasked with re-fashioning their identities through the genre of the resume, networking, and even modifying appearance. Ehrenreichâ€™s Bait and Switch puts the project of self fashioning for the workplace under close scrutiny, revealing the dilemma to conform to get the job or not and describing how personality and passion often trump intelligence, experience, and accomplishment. But, self-fashioning also has its limits based on factors that are often out of our control such as gender,
race, age, and, at times, appearance. Given this conversation about self-fashioning for the workplace, make an argument that draws on Bait and Switch to explore the tension between being oneself and selling oneself for the workplace. Is there truth in the truism to â€œfake it until you make itâ€? How do we know if weâ€™ve gone too far? You may draw on essays weâ€™ve discussed in class (and your own experience if applicable) but may not draw on outside sources.
Also this is a requirement
Listen to the buzz: Can we â€œfake it til we make itâ€? What does this expression mean and is there truth to it? Is it ethically permissible to â€œfake itâ€? What can (and canâ€™t) we fake? What does it mean to â€œmake itâ€? How do we know if we are actually faking? Whatâ€™s the difference between projecting confidence and fakery, between â€œhonest overconfidenceâ€ and lying? Is there a difference?
Does this difference play out in the same way over different forms of communication: the resume, the elevator pitch, the interview, in daily workplace interactions or team-projects? Are â€œfakingâ€ and â€œmakingâ€ industry specific or do they cover a general approach to job-seeking? Whose determining what it means to â€œmake it,â€ and does this influence how one might go about fashioning/selling oneself? How is Ehrenreichâ€™s experience with â€œtransitioningâ€ different from or similar to other job-seekers? Where is the self-fashioned Self in all this? Might there be a darker side to the relationship between education and work?
*****In your essay, you will need to articulate and represent the conversation. Think â€œThey Say;â€
whoâ€™s saying what and why? How do these claims intersect and/or complicate each other? When
you think of the â€œI Say,â€ you want to ask yourself: do I agree with one of the authors? If so, why?
Am I bringing attention to a new or under-examined issue in this conversation? Am I disagreeing
with an author? If so, why? These questions can help you formulate the level-three question that you
want to pose to the others. Or, perhaps, you do want to ask an author a specific question about their
argument while the others listen.
