Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Highly recommended because it teaches you how to collaborate with classmates and teaches you all about letters of recommendation and communication! This course will be able to help students gain knowledge on how to write professional cover letters, letters of recommendations, and memos to job organizations. Not only does it emphasis professional, but it will definitely help teach students how to communicate well with managers and coworkers in a job or career.
The highlights of this course is definitely writing professional memos and letter of recommendations. Learning how to do those will help you get in a career or job you're interested in. From what I learned, it seemed like a lot of people can make grammar and spelling errors on cover letters and letters of recommendations, which leads to people missing an opportunity to get the job they want. I can say that I'm grateful for learning about these things because professionalism is an important key to getting jobs, and it helps to teach students that grammar, spelling, and specific tone shows your level of professionalism and how the interviewers may judge you on what you write to them.

Advice for students:
Reading is DEFINITELY required to succeed in this class. All students should make sure to look over examples in the book required for the course, and it's important to note that when doing professional memos and letters of recommendation, everything should be error free. Considering that this is a very professional course, it is important for students to make sure that grammar and spelling errors are never on papers. Finally, this course ends with a final presentation and research paper. It is something like a Capstone, but if you never did anything like this in highschool, do not feel scared at all; in fact, students can plan out what they will like to talk about (anything they're passionate about, job career, etc.) because this will probably make the research and presentation easy for them. You will have to write a memo to the professor proposing what topic you will like to research on and answer why you want to do that research, and it is required to add at least 10 resources to the paper. It may seem tough, but if students can put their willpower into something like this, then they will do just fine.
