This free course combines English language, employment readiness skills, and computer training. The course is not a traditional ELL/ESL course, although it includes grammar structures and pronunciation skills important in job-seeking. Students learn to identify and describe their skills, work and educational history, and future goals using Microsoft word processing. Students produce resumes, cover letters, essays, and email for professional and personal use, as well as use essential online job seeking resources.
