College Admissions Essays 101
These workshops are designed to provide high school college applicants in Palm Beach and Broward counties with the information they need to develop a strong essay by explaining what admissions boards are looking for. These workshops will help you decide what to highlight, explain how personal the essay should be and how to structure it effectively using correct grammar and punctuation. When this 90-minute workshop is completed, you will leave with a rough draft of your essay and a set of resources to help your revise it further.
These workshops can be held at your high school or at the FAU CCEW offices in Boca Raton.
Ask your high school counselor to contact our offices for more information at 561-406-8338.
Resume Writing Workshops
These workshops are for anyone who wants to advance their career and achieve their personal goals.
In these workshops, conducted on FAU's Boca Raton campus, experienced instructors and business professionals will help you write a new resume or improve an existing one. Your new resume will highlight your talents, so you can stand out from other applicants. At the end of the workshop, you will leave with a new, professionally edited resume that includes the appropriate key words search engines look for to categorize applicants. These resume workshops are held on the first Saturday of each month, from 10 am to 12, at the CCEW offices in Boca Raton. The cost for these workshops is $65. For more information and to register, call 561-406-8338.
Business Writing Workshops
Good business writing helps develop new leaders, improves productivity, enhances corporate reputations and can prevent expensive mistakes. These are some of the reasons the CCEW is now offering business writing workshops to companies that want to advance the writing proficiency of their employees at all levels and to all audiences, internal and external. The writing workshops are customized and flexible for your specific business and run with one instructor to every eight participants.
The FAU CCEW business writing workshops are completely customizable and flexible. There are two phases to conducting the workshops: 1) A needs assessment review of written communications with accompanying interviews to deter what areas you want to improve, and; 2) Developing the customized workshops (content, hours, frequency) that meet your goals. The assessment can be separate or packaged with the workshops. Costs are based on assessment time and the length of the workshops. For more information call 561-406-8338.
