Description: Employers no longer care just about what you know or what you’ve done. They also want to know if you “fit” with the culture. More important, they’re looking for people who can “add value” though their ideas, network, or attitude. In this course, students will learn how to sell themselves to employers beyond just their experience. Over five weeks, students will learn how to make a strong impression on decision-makers through their verbal and non-verbal communication. To start, students will research firms that interest them and the job prospects for positions for which they’re qualified. From there, they will develop an elevator pitch to sell themselves; learn how to speak persuasively about their qualifications; and use body language to reinforce their message.

Review: No reviews.

Additional Background: This is the second in a five course specialization called “Interviewing and Resume Writing in English.” To learn more about these courses and register for them, click here.
