Persuasive Message

Persuasive Message

This assignment consisted of the class taking part in a campaign to recruit Brooklyn business and industry partners to provide internship opportunities for students at New York City College of Technology. A general persuasive appeal to employers encouraging them to consider accepting City Tech interns. My ultimate goal was to write a persuasive message from a student point of view who is a Paralegal Studies & Law major and convince employers to contact the Director of Internship Opportunities at City Tech.

Negative Message

American Express.

The negative message assignment that was given consisted of converting a negative message effectively. My topic was telling retirees of American Express they must switch to HMOs health plan. I had to explain to company retirees how changes to their health insurance plan will affect them and how to make the necessary adjusments.
