What worked, made a difference, changed what you do or thought?  

I thought the class was very beneficial to my business writing. I have gained an understanding of how to write a memo and I think that will be highly beneficial for when I am in the position to write a memo. I think that the questions at the end of each module made a huge difference for me. It caused me to think and ponder what the class was really about. I like how the questions weren’t always regarding the topic of the text, and the answer wasn’t laid out in front of you, but that you actually had to think to come up with the correct answer. My favorite assignment so far was doing the cover letter and resume. I really enjoyed that assignment.What didn’t add to what you know, what was not all that important as you consider your own work and goals?

I would have to say that the assignment on denial letters didn’t really do much for me as a student. I was able to learn a great deal from the class, but I really didn’t take much away from that week. I hate to say it, but there are so many example of how to write a denial letter online it didn’t really help me because quite often they are generic. I would have liked to have been proposed a situation where I actually had to respond to some of the candidates from an interview or something like that. I think that would help me to learn more of the content and what the class was really trying to teach.

Thank you for a great class Professor Swartzman. I really enjoyed this class and the time that I spent. I feel like I learned a lot. It was highly beneficial to me and my future career in the business environment. Thanks for being a great and personal instructor!
