Writing skills are a critical part of a career in any industry. When we learn to compose emails with impact, they can lead to new relationships and change our path forever.

Join communications expert and author Danny Rubin for an engaging, practical webinar on how to write with poise and leave the reader wanting more. Danny will walk you step-by-step through an authentic email for networking and to ask an employer about job opportunities. He will also show you the power of a short story as the intro paragraph to a cover letter.

As Danny says, “Write well. Open doors.” After the webinar, you’ll see what he means!
