What skill sets are most valuable to the industry or career of your choice? List skills-how many do you already have? How many do you need to get? How will you get them?
Asst #4-Email and Voice Messages
Emails and Voicemail Pitches
There are two parts to this assignment. Based on your Dream Job description and your elevator/Jim Becaq pitch…respond to an advertisement for employment with an email and a voice mail…you could do both at the same time by recording your voice message and link it when you post to the Discussion Board…that’s probably the best use of technology too!
