Business Writing for Success…
ENG 209: Business Writing
In this course, we will explore various forms of business communication, including (but not limited to) email correspondence, inter-office memos, formal letters, short reports, long reports, oral presentations, and resume writing. We will begin by discussing the elements of effective writing in the business arena, practice writing in several business situations (including simulating a job search), and culminate the course by producing and presenting a report applicable to the area of business you are interested in.
For one of the assignments, you will conduct research on a job you are interested in and produce all the materials necessary to apply for that job, including writing an application letter(s) and resume, designing interview questions and responses, and writing thank you letters.
