“Your” Fortune 500 Company –“Walmart”

You are interviewing for a senior communication director job at your Fortune 500 company ” Walmart”. To prepare for your interview, it is essential you know as much about the company as possible. For your first assignment, put together a dossier about the Walmart Use multiple sources to begin to learn more about your organization: company Website, Google, blogs, social media, Lexis-Nexis (or any other news gathering service). Please do not cut-and-paste sections of text from the company’s website, as this is considered plagiarism, and you will be reported. Everything you write in this dossier should be in your own words properly cited with quotation marks and in-text citations, as well as a reference page.
In your dossier, include the following:
PART 1: Write a one-paragraph summary of the company “Walmart” in your own words. [10%]
PART II: Present ten important facts about the company (bulleted; do not copy paste). [Note: these 10 facts should be distinct from what you are writing about in the rest of the assignment. For example, if Tesla is your company, one of the facts should not be that Elon Musk is the CEO, because that is information you will report in point 4. Instead you could say that Elon Musk, the current CEO, is one of the founders of the company, and that would be considered additional information beyond just stating who the CEO is]. [15%]
PART III: What is the company’s current share price? Summarize the company’s financial performance for the last quarter of 2021 (at the very least include revenues, profit, dividend paid out, if any), and discuss any trends that analysts are talking about related to the company. [20%]

How well is it reflected on the website, through the company’s various communication media (i.e., advertising, social media, through various tabs on their website, sister websites, and so on)?

Quick tips:
Don’t bother writing your name, the class number, my name etc. in the assignment document. Blackboard will tell me who you are.
Vary your in-text citations, and be creative about citing your sources.
Avoid using the same citation format repeatedly. For example, don’t start each sentence with “According to…” etc. Instead, consider varying how you cite with stems such as “In a Forbes article, Jacobs (2017) notes that…” or “Jacobs (2017) explained…” and so on.
