What are the top five personal qualities and skills employers are seeking today?
According to the 2013 Job Outlook survey by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, they are:
• Communication skills (listening, speaking, and writing)
• Strong work ethic
• Teamwork skills
• Analytical skills
The certificate and minor in technical and professional communication programs at Lawrence Technological University focus on ALL of these.
The technical and professional communication program emphasizes lean writing. You will learn to communicate crisply, clearly, and concisely. In keeping with the University’s motto of “theory and practice,” this program provides you with a strong academic grounding combined with practical, professional experience and hands-on projects. With a minor or certificate in technical and professional communication, for example, you will be equipped to write and edit the copy, design and publish the brochure, and give an effective presentation on your work. These skills are in high demand among today’s employers.
Your 18-credit-hour program consists of:
|Technical and Professional Communication|
