Interpersonal communication is the process by which people exchange information, feelings, and meaning through verbal and non-verbal messages: it is face-to-face communication. It’s not just what you say—the language used–but how you say it—tone of voice, facial expressions and body language.
Your interpersonal skills can make and break your job search. During this workshop you will learn more about interpersonal communication and how to sharpen your skills to get the job you want.
