Week 2 Assignment – Professional E-mail Message
Choose one of the professional scenarios outlined in this document:
Before you begin your Week 2 assignment, download the E-mail Scenarios file and review the four scenarios.
To complete this assignment, you will select one of the scenarios and write a professional e-mail message (in the form of Figure 5A on page 85 of BCOM) from one of the character’s perspectives as outlined in the scenario. The e-mail should be addressed to another character regarding the communication issue provided in the scenario.
While your message must take the form of an e-mail, you will submit it as a writing assignment in Word document format. Review the facts in the scenario you selected and keep these elements in mind as you compose your e-mail. Remember, the focus of this assignment is to address the communication issue as outlined in the scenario you selected. Use the names from the scenario in your To, From, Subject, and Signature areas.
- Craft an e-mail message that summarizes all relevant facts of the scenario, requests a face-to-face meeting to discuss the relevant facts at a specific time, and uses language and tone appropriate for the recipient.
- Format your e-mail appropriately using the standard form, a descriptive subject line, a professional greeting/salutation, and a signature.
