• remember to set up your document as if it were an actual email: you must include to, from, and subject headers.

EMAIL ASSIGNMENT
Assessments/Assignments
Instructions:
Congratulations! You have just found out that you’re one of the final applicants being considered for your dream job as an engineer with Tech Giant, Inc. You love everything about Tech Giant’s informal work environment, from the high-end coffee machines to the foosball tables and the fact that everyone is on a first-name basis. When Scott, the hiring manager, called to inform you that you made it to the final interview stage with the company’s CEO, you were so excited that you forgot one very important detail: you have already committed to driving your aunt to the hospital for an important surgery on the day of the interview!
Scott will be out of town and will be unreachable by phone for the next week, so you have no choice but to communicate the time conflict to him by email. You remember Scott mentioning that this is a particularly busy period for the company, which is why they are looking to hire more people in the first place. You obviously don’t want to lose your interview spot, but it would be unacceptable to cancel on your aunt. You’ll have to be very careful about how you communicate the news to Scott and request a different interview date.
Your Task:
Write an email to inform Scott that you are not available for your interview on the previously discussed day and time, and to request a different interview date. Make sure you give him every reason to grant this request by proving what a good communicator you are!
Tips
• Be sure to review in our textbook Chapter 2, Chapter 5 P. 103-107, and in the back of the book Appendix A P. 401-402 before starting this assignment.
• Remember to set up your document as if it were an actual email: you must include To, From, and Subject headers.
• Be very careful about establishing an appropriate tone, and selecting necessary information.
• Analyze your audience, and consider your purpose carefully.
• Use positive language as much as possible and ask yourself how you would react if you were the recipient. It’s a good idea to read your message out loud, in order to gauge its impact and overall tone.
• Remember less is often more in situations such as this. Work on conciseness.
• Proofread carefully: you will be graded on spelling and mechanics, tone and style, grammar, format, and content. Regardless of the content of your email, I cannot pass an assignment that has significant problems in these areas.
• Be creative! You can make up plausible details. Also: don’t simply take details from the scenario and re-purpose into an email.

Once you have looked up your subject matter, briefly discuss the following:
1. What subject did you look up? (What are you writing about?)
2. What keywords are being used to search or that subject? How popular are they currently?
3. How would you incorporate the top keyword search terms into the SEO elements on your blog post for your final assignment? (Page Title, Headline, Text, etc.)

Once you have completed your final revisions, upload this to blackboard as a pdf.

Format: One-page product overview, at least 12pt font, 1-inch margins, featuring a meaningful graphic/illustration, uploaded to Blackboard by the due date.
Task:
You will complete this assignment in a few different stages. First, you will choose your product. It should be something already existing and have plenty of readily information available about it. You want to be able to research competitors, costs, and benefits in order to construct your one-pager. After that, you will engage in several rounds of peer review and editing during class. Your professor will provide further details about this process. Once you have your product, conduct some initial research and then put together a publish that contains all the following information
A brief, descriptive project title (2-4 words).
The 3 nearest competitors (existing solutions) and price.
Business contact information
A description of the product opportunity you have identified. Your description may include any of the following: Documentation of the market need, shortcomings of existing competitive products, and definition of the target market and its size. This will likely highlight your unique selling proposition.
A meaningful graphic (that you create) and (if relevant) an illustration of the product
Once you have completed your final revisions, upload this to Blackboard as a PDF.
Purpose:
The assignment is designed to help you develop a concise, engaging, and clear overview of a product in the form of a “one pager.” A one-pager is an increasingly common marketing tool, used to give an overview of a company, product, or service that can easily be shared and digested. The goal of this assignment is to help you practice how to create this specific genre (the one-pager) as well as practicing concision and clarity. Since all the information about the product or service is already existing, your job is to synthesize it into a concise and compelling package.
The task links to the following course-level learning objectives:
Produce clear, concise, and persuasive professional communication of various types.
Produce evidence-based and argumentatively sound professional communication of various types.
Habitually revise and edit work before sending, delivering, or submitting it.
