Graduates of Southwestern Community College’s Professional Office Management class are ready to show local businesses how well they’ve done in class, and what effective employees they would be. Over a three-month period they’ve worked to sharpen their office management and computing skills in class. In fact, they’ve done so well that the class is going to be extended, as a “master class,” according to instructor Trish Myler. The students will be fine-tuning their skills using actual work provided to them by members of the Franklin business community.
“Perhaps a business needs to send out a personalized email to a large number of customers but isn’t set up to do that. Our students are adept at designing e-mails and creating and merging mailing lists that are crucial for a business,” Myler said.
