This user-friendly, compact text emphasizes the most necessary, useful skills and strategies for successful workplace writing. Based on the successful parent text, Successful Writing at Work, 7/e, the Concise edition maintains a practical approach, an abundance of realistic situations and problems, real-world examples, and detailed guidelines for drafting, editing, and producing professional documents and graphics. The text focuses on the most frequently written business messages, with practical examples and guidelines about preparing e-mails, memos, letters, instructions, proposals, reports, and Web sites. The emphasis on thinking globally and multiculturally prepares students for entry into the working world. Ethical and legal issues involved in using the Web and related technologies, both in the classroom and the workplace, are consistently stressed throughout the text. Accurate and relevant coverage of instructions and procedures illustrates the importance, preparation (in print and online), and implications of writing common business documents. The interrelationship of visuals to text teaches students about choosing and formatting the most effective visuals for their written work. Coverage of PowerPoint presentations in Chapter 10 includes examples and guidelines on how to incorporate text and visuals into a successful speech outline for a sales presentation. In Chapter 5, practical advice on searching for and securing a job helps students recognize their qualifications and interests. This chapter also includes writing guidance on reacute;sumeacute;s and application letters and interview tips.
