This course is meant to help you learn skills that you will need in the professional world. In order to get a sense of the skills you will need, we will do a small exploratory assignment.
Using a website like Indeed.com or Monster.com locate a job ad in your field (in other words, related to your major or career goals) that references communication or writing skills of any kind. Once you've chosen an ad that mentions communication, also identify any references to professional attitudes or work habits that they expect from an employee.
Attach the advertisement (as an image or pdf) and then explain your findings, in a paragraph that is at least 100 words long. In other words, explain to me where you see references to communication in the ad, and/or references to attitudes and habits they want in an employee. Then explain what you think it means–how are you interpreting these ideas?
Note: if you submit a job ad that does not mention communication, you will not get full credit. Find one that discusses communication.
Here's how you'll be graded:
- Assignment submission is well-developed, thorough, and detailed. (6 points)
- Assignment submission responds to all parts of the assigned texts or prompt. If a word count is mentioned, the assignment meets the word count. (2 points)
- Assignment shows evidence of proofreading and editing. (2 points).
