SOUTH ORANGE, NJ (January 9, 2013) — Seton Hall University (www.shu.edu), one of the country’s leading Catholic universities, announced its Spring Series for Professionals today, a collection of professional studies programs offered through its Division of Continuing Education and Professional Studies. Courses provide savvy and determined professionals the opportunity to learn what works -- tried and true skills that they can put to use immediately to apply for a new position, advance in the position that they have, or be more effective in their job.
“In this difficult job environment, people need to constantly update their knowledge and skills to remain competitive,” notes Dr. Nancy Low-Hogan, Dean of Continuing Education and Professional Studies. “Seton Hall’s Spring Series for Professionals has been specially designed to support people who want greater job satisfaction, to contribute at a higher level, and want to be the best that they can be. We focus on sharing best practices and proven techniques that give people confidence that they know what works in a variety of situations.”
Communications skills are emphasized in 2013’s Spring Professional Series, with opportunities to learn what works in the social media space, in negotiating, leadership and grammar. Courses begin on March 5 and continue through April 20.
