Email and Emojis: Career Services talks professional communication

Jake Meyer

The Career Services department hosted a series of workshops this week on how to communicate effectively in a professional environment.

The workshops were curated by employer relations coordinator LaRae Vowiell, and covered a variety of topics pertaining to proper communication in a professional environment.

Attendees learned the meaning behind certain body language, what to include and what not to include in an e-mail, appropriate cell phone usage in the office, how to answer business phone calls and leave professional voice messages, and how to construct a proper cover letter.

The workshop is one of many that are hosted weekly by our Career Services department.  They cover a multitude of topics, from perfecting your resume to negotiating salaries.

This particular workshop won’t return until next fall, but you can view a schedule of upcoming workshops and seminars on the Career Services website at career.umkc.edu.
