End-of-the-School-Year Resource Roundup

Yes, indeed, the end of another school year has arrived, and I am already thinking ahead to the next academic year. In planning ahead, I’ve also reflected on the past year and realized I have gathered a LOT of online resources related to business communication. I’m guessing many of you are like me in that you never really leave the classroom and are always thinking about the next semester, class, or lesson.

The articles below appeared in the news feed generated by my Zite app, and I then saved them to Pocket. (Zite and Pocket, by the way, are probably my two favorite apps.) You can also find more resources by following me on Twitter (@pjglentz) or viewing my teaching board on Pinterest. If you have any “must have” resources you’d like to share with us, please do!

It’s pretty easy to put together a lesson on the dos and don’ts of interviewing for a job: Say this, don’t say that, dress appropriately, research the company…the list goes on. If you’re looking for stories, statistics, or trivia to enliven your class discussion of the job interview, here are a few articles, courtesy of my Zite app and Twitter feed, that you may find interesting.

On another note…Are any of you going to the Association for Business Communication conference in New Orleans this week? If so, look us up. We would enjoy seeing you.
