MOOC: English for Career Development

This course is designed for non-native English speakers who are interested in advancing their careers in the global marketplace.  In this course, you will learn about the job search, application, and interview process in the United States, while comparing and contrasting the same process in your home country. This course will also give you the opportunity to explore your global career path, while building your vocabulary and improving your language skills to achieve your professional goals.

The first unit in this course will introduce the U.S. job application process and provide strategies for identifying the jobs that match your interests and skills. Unit 2 will take you through the steps necessary to produce a professional-looking resume. In unit 3, you will work to develop a clear and concise cover letter. The final unit of the course focuses on networking and interview skills.

English for Career Development is taught by ELP Language Specialists Brian McManus and Robyn Turner. This course, along with 4 other ELP MOOCs, are sponsored by the US Department of State under the English Access Microscholarship Program.
