IBS Workshops

For the AY 2013-14, the English Language Program will be working with Career Services and Student Services at IBS to bring students additional language assistance through a series of workshops.

The focus of ELP’s work is on the language and cultural elements students must understand in order to write winning resumes and cover letters, as well as to interview successfully in person or by phone. Specifically, ELP workshops offer students insights into such areas as how to maintain a professional tone, how to improve the structure of a cover letter and how to use industry-specific jargon. Making these skills less abstract allows students to leave workshops with immediate feedback and the satisfaction that their work is paying off.

While the work of the English Language Program is largely geared toward English language learners, developing a professional writing style and organizing one’s ideas are challenges that all students face, so ELP is delighted to be able to offer communications skills workshops to domestic and international students alike.

Workshops are offered in the Chancellor’s Suite on Wednesdays from 5-6:20pm and Fridays from 11:00am-12:20pm.

Space is limited. Registration is required online via CareerFocus.
