On July 29, 2020 we hosted a virtual workshop on the basics of email etiquette during your job search.
In this post, you’ll find the recording of this workshop, along with additional online training resources to further prepare for your job search.
Additional Library Resources
Ferguson’s Career Guidance Center offers a number of resources in their Job Hunting and Workplace Skills page, including sections on Ethics and Etiquette and Communication Skills, both of which can be beneficial when crafting job search emails. Other sections include Resumes and Cover Letters.
Provides online training courses that cover a variety of topics (including business, design, web development and multimedia skills) and software (Microsoft Office, Adobe Creative Suite and open source applications). See our Polish Your Skills with Lynda blog posts, with recorded video tutorial by our staff, to understand how Lynda works.
