Summer Opportunities

Make the most of your summer!! This interactive course teaches ‘real life’ communication skills and strategies that help students present their best professional selves and develop a fulfilling career. Students will explore and articulate their internship, career, and graduate school goals for distinct audiences and purposes as they develop a professional communication portfolio of materials such as resumes, cover letters, statements of purpose, electronic communications, elevator pitches, project descriptions, and abstracts, and online profiles (i.e., LinkedIn). Students will revise and refine their written and spoken work across the semester based on feedback from peers, instructors, and alumni. By the semester’s end, students will have gained extensive experience with the communication skills expected in today’s competitive environment. This course is suitable for sophomores and juniors in the Hajim School; all others require permission of the instructor. Students must have completed a minimum of two engineering or CS courses in their major. Courses in the WRTG 27X series may not be taken more than once for credit.
