Global Internship Program
I am very happy to welcome all of you to the Global Internship Program. We will have four-hour class sessions and several out-of-class events. The class sessions will focus on written business communications, including emails, letters, marketing materials, and information technology. We will learn the proper format, punctuation, and style for various types of business writing, as well as focussing on grammar, vocabulary, and mechanics specific to business applications. We will be using real world examples and formats as much as possible. In addition to our focus on business communication we will also be preparing resumes and cover letters to assist you in your job search. As paper resumes and CVs are giving way to online job-hunting tools such as LinkedIN we will also be cultivating those resources. I look forward to helping you learn to bring yourself to the world through writing!
Module 1: Documents for the Job Seeker
L 1.1 ~ AboutMe: An Online Business Card
L 1.2 ~ LinkedIN: An Online Resume
L 1.3 ~ Formatting and Writing the Paper Resume
Thanks to all of the student's hard effort to create and carefully edit their LinkedIn profiles, we are now able to download a paper resume using the LinkedIn resume maker. Win-Win!
Module 2: Writing for the Web
L 2.1 Organizing and Producing Effective Web Content
Before you begin building a website it is important to prepare by organizing the materials that you want to show to viewers. There are several ways to do this but I will be showing you what I think is the easiest way to get that information into a flowchart or mind map as quickly as possible using free software.

Class Event #1: Ocean Sailing
Our first event will be a sailing excursion aboard the beautiful sailing yacht "Manbal." The students from last semester's GiP program participated in the sailing event and they LOVED it. Our captain Jaeho Lee has over thirty years of sailing experience and is also a sailing instructor and advises the local racing community on sailing safety issues. Afterwards we can eat a delicious dinner.
