Get Ready for the Workplace

You’ll need to be able to write clear and persuasive resumes, cover letters, emails and more. And you’ll need strong critical thinking, problem solving and basic math skills. WWCC’s Applied Instruction courses will help you practice these key skills before you graduate so you’ll have the best chance to succeed in your career.

Courses in Applied Instruction

Though fun group activities, mock workplace scenarios, and solo projects, you’ll learn important lessons about getting along in the workplace. You’ll learn to communicate well. And you’ll build reasoning and math skills that will make your work life easier.
