    Business Communication and Resume Writing

    United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 7

    My educational background has given me a solid understanding of organizational communication and human relations. While studying for my bachelor of arts, I developed and co-facilitated six workshops of various subjects, including intergenerational communication in the workplace and transformational learning. Studying for my master of human relations helped refine my understanding of human and organizational behavior, thus enabling me to better assess community needs and foster relationships between employee and employer. As a Job Placement Coordinator, I have become proficient at writing cover letters and resumes, as well as communicating diligently through written word with potential employers and local businesses. Most importantly, I am a life-long learner, seeking to always improve and never remain static. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to continue to develop professionally.
