Communicating for Success

About the Program

Communicating effectively, especially in writing, is an essential skill for today’s global, remote-first workforce.

Communication skills consistently top the list of skills employers look for in job candidates. Amazon is famous for its six-page memo. Instead of slide presentations, teams must submit a six-page, detailed narratively structured memo for each project. Vivek Ravisankar, CEO of HackerRank, the market leader for technical interviews, notes that the shift to hybrid and remote work means that “writing is the most important new skill for tech workers, regardless of role.”

So, whether it’s drafting specifications for software, pitching your ideas, or applying for college or a new job, writing well is vital. This introductory class focuses on writing well for students pursuing STEM degrees. You will learn how to write clearly and concisely, and set yourself up for academic and professional success.

What students are saying

I have grown so much in confidence now, and for the first time I could work with someone virtually to build a project. The excitement from completing projects is incomparable.

The best part was learning with people from different countries and collaborating with the squad. I enjoyed interacting with people that are not in Kenya.

I didn't expect it to be so fun. The best part was team-building and relating to others. I saw so many different solutions to problems when we were working together.
