Summary

LEARNING OUTCOMES

You will learn:

  • how to communicate specifically to enter the work force (through CV, cover letter, LinkedIn, job interview, job search strategy)
  • how to communicate effectively to a wider audience (through short video production, oral communication).

This minor consists in a series of workshops built to allow students to practice, try, fail, and try again, to get tips from professionals from industry and academic worlds. Students through the different workshops will become aware of the importance of becoming an effective communicator, to identify the audience, the main purpose of the communication and adapt the communication adequately.

Part I (15h): How to communicate to enter the work force

  • A series of 6 workshops: Job’ Action’s workshops (Sylvain Lareyre & Anne-Laure Simonelli)
  • A specific session on the job market will be held by disciplines: Computer Sciences (Sylvain Lareyre), Law (Vincent de Bonnafos), Digital Strategy (Guillaume Rolle) and Electronics (Matthias Raucoules-Aimé).

Part II (9h): How to communicate effectively to a wider audience

  • Short video production: The objective of this part of the course is to transmit the bases of the audiovisual communication to students in order to enable them to communicate through this media in their future projects. Students learn scriptwriting, shooting and editing. Students will learn basic rolls of the cinematic language, as well as tools and practical hints for the creation of short videos (students will use their phone for shooting and editing).
  • Oral communication: The objective of this part of the course is to give students different tips on how to speak in public, how to train, to practice to finally become an effective communicator.
