Writing is critical across all business functions—from accounting to marketing to human resource management and beyond. In addition to working with numbers, careers in business often include conducting research, documenting findings and creating reports and presentations—and of course, writing emails. This is where refining your written and verbal communication skills is key.
We sat down with Fox senior, Business Communication Center (BCC) peer tutor coordinator and accounting major Hanna Cramer to learn about how the BCC can help students looking to build skills and prepare themselves for future success in the business world.
“The BCC is an eminently helpful place for students to come looking for guidance and aid on their professional academic papers,” she says. “Our peer tutors seek to help students retain professional writing skills to ensure they will effectively communicate with not only their professors but also employers post-graduation.”
Feedback the BCC has received on its peer tutors includes:
- “…very helpful in providing insights on how to properly fix my paragraphs and grammatical errors.”
- “…helped me go through both my paper and catch mistakes I would not even think of.”
- “…gained great insight into writing a LinkedIn article.”
Sessions are free and offered in-person or virtual—so what are you waiting for?
