WritePoint Announces Courses in June

Well, it’s now the right time. After Passover, now that we are all back to our “normal” routines, it is the right time to upgrade and expand your professional skills. And to make it easier to begin, we are starting a series of crash courses designed to bring you up to date on certain skills, or teach you new ones to increase your value in the market.

New! Our benchmark Technical Writing course, as well as our Marcom course will be offered at our new Yokneam Training Center. Contact us for details.

Unless otherwise specified, courses will take place at our Jerusalem

Crash Course 1: Social Media

Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, Blogs. This is how the message gets out there today, and it delivers a message that no other type of media can duplicate.

Crash Course 2: Resumes and Interview Skills

When a company gets dozens, if not hundreds of resumes in response to a single ad, you have to make sure that yours is one that stands out and gets attention from HR. What works? What should you not put on your resume? How important is the “cover” letter? And once you get the interview, how should you answer questions? What type of questions should you expect?

This course will provide you with the tools needed to make your resume more effective, and make you more confident in interviews.
