Foundations in Business & finance
Class overview - Syllabus
Learn the fundamentals of money and entrepreneurship all in one class. Students will study financial principles and basic business skills that will follow them for the rest of their life. Students will learn basic business tools like word processing, spreadsheets, and web design. Students will also be expected to write goals, create a resume, cover letter and to apply for in-class jobs. Each student will also be asked to interview for their job and then when hired get paid with our “Crews Cash” classroom economy system. Students can then use their classroom currency to learn about markets using our monthly auctions. Special thanks to our class sponsor, Green Financial Scholar’s Program, funded by Green Financial Resources, Rogers S. Green, Founder and Owner.

When you think of things to put on your resume, you probably think of hard skills like coding, speaking another language, etc. However, it’s equally important to know what your soft skills are and how to highlight them. Watch this video to learn more about the difference between hard skills and soft skills. Then, answer the questions.
