English to Boost Your Career is a program hosted in Open Canvas for non-native English speakers who are interested in advancing their careers in the global marketplace. It guides learners through learning about entering the job market, writing resumes and cover letters, networking and interview skills, and planning career next steps. Right now this program runs once a year,  ranges from 500-1,000 learners, and is rapidly growing!

“It is the same familiar Canvas environment that we are used to from our credit offerings.”

-Elizabeth Gillstrom , Manager of Testing and Programs

ELP decided to host English to Boost Your Career in Open Canvas because they “needed a way to give individuals outside the Penn community the Penn experience. We can do this with Open Canvas. Learners still get the great remote Penn learning experience, but no need to create Penn keys or onboard them with other time-consuming administrative matters.”
