Shandra's answers

What I have learned from this course personally is that I need a lot of improvement with my communication skills. Some things you just don’t take very serious, and I realize communication was one of those things for me. I really never took much thought into. I realize it’s not just enough to carry on a conversation, but how is what you’re trying to communicate received. I also realized how important communication is through writing is. You can’t just throw words on a page and call it communication. After this course I am compelled to make a change.

What I have learned from this course professionally about communication is that certain jobs that you apply for employer watch this closely to determine if you are qualified for the job. They are looking at your body language, how you dress, your resume, and how you talk. From this course I realized that because of my lackluster attitude concerning communication I was passed up for a lot of good jobs.
