This specialization will help you develop the English language strategies and communication skills you need to advance in your professional career. Whether you already have a successful career and are looking to move forward, whether you’re looking to change careers, whether you’re starting out in the world of work, or whether you’re coming back into the world of work after some time away – if you believe in working for more than a paycheck, then this specialization will help you. The core courses cover preparing for a successful job search, including self research and research of the job market and industries of interest; strengthening your interview skills by recognizing what hiring managers are looking for and taking steps to prepare for the types of tough questions today's premier companies use; and preparing a resume, cover letter and supporting business documents. The capstone will allow you to apply the skills you learn in this specialization to your own job search. A key benefit of this specialization is the opportunities you'll have to practice your interviewing skills with other job-seekers from around the world. You’ll give them feedback and they’ll give you feedback. In this process, you’ll gain new insight into what makes a speaker successful and you’ll gain confidence in your English interviewing skills.

  • Este curso es completamente en línea, de modo que no necesitas ir a un aula en persona. Puedes acceder a tus lecciones, lecturas y tareas en cualquier momento y cualquier lugar a través de Internet o tu dispositivo móvil.

  • The courses will run every 2 weeks after launch. However the capstone will run less frequently, 4-5x per year.

  • The courses are aimed at learners with Business English proficiency, which is commonly taken to mean learners with at least a B1 level of proficiency on the Common European Framework Reference (CEFR) scale. Realistically, to successfully navigate the complex path of interviewing, resume writing, and working in an English-language environment, learners will need at least a B2 level of proficiency. The specialization itself, however, should help you advance your spoken language proficiency - no matter what level you start at.

  • No, you do not. You do not even need to take the modules in a course, or the lessons in a module, in a specific order.

    In putting the specialization together, we did conceive of courses 1, 2, and 3 going in order - and there is some logic to following them in that order, with course 4 taken after this sequence, or concurrently with one of the other courses. We have also put the modules and lessons in a logical order.

    But we anticipate that every learner will come to the specialization with unique needs. If you are a learner with a near C2 or even native language proficiency, you may choose to skip over the lessons that focus on language skills; if you're already far ahead in the job search process and have an interview lined up, you may choose to focus just on the lessons that deal with specific interviewing strategies. If you have a telephone interview coming up, you may choose to focus just on the lessons that deal with telephone interviewing.

    In short, these are not courses that have prerequisites. We expect some learners will follow the lessons in sequence, while others will pick and choose at random.

  • No, you will not.

  • Your spoken English skills will improve. You will be positioned to find those future positions that best complement your strengths and skills. You will have the strategies and language needed to perform well in a variety of interview formats and to craft winning resumes and cover letters.

    You will be able to identify the hiring manager's purpose behind the most frequently used interview questions. You will be able to prepare for and respond effectively to traditional interview questions, behavioral interview questions, situational (case) interview questions, brainteaser interview questions, and wild-card interview questions. You will be able to prepare for and identify how to approach telephone or Skype interviews, in-person interviews, team and panel interviews, stress interviews, and competency-based interviews.

    You will be able to market yourself more effectively, according to the expectations of the English job market. You will be able to align your job hunting efforts with the customs and practices of employers in the English job market. You will be able to prepare for, execute, and succeed at a job search in the English speaking world.
