Course description

Business writing for graduates – in-house training

Recruitment of graduates is a large investment in business. Despite them entering with the required technical skills and knowledge required to succeed, their potential lack of experience in writing in a professional work environment could hold them back. This course from Emphasis is designed to give graduates a basic foundational knowledge in all areas of professional writing – day-to-day emails, reports or customer letters.

This course is aimed at any graduate (or equivalent level) in your organisation who has to write in a professional environment.
