You how to draft an effective cover letter, prepare a strong resume, prepare for an interview, develop or improve your networking skills, and other job search techniques and tools, including compiling a personal reference list.
  • Introduction to Business: This class is provided as part of the Computer Office Administration program to help students understand how businesses function and operate. You will learn about different types of businesses, wage and labor laws, marketing and sales, and customer service.
