This course provides aspiring professionals with basic business and organizational tools. Students learn to write professional cover letters, devise effective resumes, as well as research, write and apply for grants. Students also learn to refine their personal communication skills and practice the art of networking and interviewing. Finally, a sizable portion of the course is spent in developing administrative skills from very basic time management techniques to helpful tips on tax preparation and personal bookkeeping. The emphasis is on simulating real market scenarios; therefore, students complete actual grant applications, tax statements and assemble tour and/or performance event budgets.
The course is offered in lecture format with an on-line component consisting of support material, form templates, sample Power Point presentations, group blog, and networking tips.
