Crafting resume and cover letters. Meeting your employer: Coming Up!

Do you feel confident when writing in English? According to the research conducted by A.V. Basova, writing has long been considered secondary in the process of foreign language acquisition, particularly in Eastern Europe. Personally, I have found myself in a situation when writing even a small email took all of my energy.

Spending so much time writing has discouraged many from pursuing any writing activity whatsoever, but we really can't throw the baby out with the baby water. In other words, just because the first paragraph takes hours to write does not mean "we are not born to be writers." Just like any other skill, writing can be developed.

Writing becomes vitally important when you try to apply for a job or even send a quick email. Just as pronunciation can make or break your image in a face-to-face encounter, writing can either help you achieve success in finding a great job or make your career inefficient.

In October and November OnlinEnglish offers a series of 5 webinars on writing a resume, cover letter, job inquiry letter, and creating your professional profile online. On top of that, you will have a chance to participate in an interview with a very successful business woman and financial analyst, Deanna Causey, who will be answering questions on how to network and interview for a job successfully (For more information in Russian, please click here).

The webinars have a bargain price, starting from $20, depending on your level of involvement and participation. To receive more detailed information, please register here.

Registration deadline is October 15.
