MEMO

This week’s assignment, you have the task of writing both good news and bad news. When writing good news, remember to use the direct approach; however, when writing the bad news, use indirect approach. A single upload is fine if each memo starts on a new page. You are welcomed to use the attached template, or you may use a different template. Hi everyone, I wanted to give an example of what a memo looks like. Additionally, when you click the Memo 1 Assignment, you will see a memo layout sample that you can use as well. Please note that a memo is usually 1 page long, so no need to write more than that. Also, be sure that you follow assignment instructions. The assignment already gives you the scenario and the business you are representing. You do have a bit of flexibility to get creative, so please feel free to expand on the scenarios given. PLEASE FOLLOW ASSIGNMENT INSTRUCTIONS. I will take off points if you don’t. As a reminder, the assignment is due on Tuesday, February 1. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or want to talk through something. I am happy to help! Guidelines: Use Times Roman Numeral, Courier New, or Arial. Left justify memo and use 1-inch margin. Use correct headings (You may use caps, bold font, and double-space): Date: Write out month completely To: Reader’s names and job titles From: Your name and job title Subject: Be specific and concise Do not use salutation. Memo must be single-spaced (except for headings); leave a space between each paragraph. Do not indent paragraphs. No need to use complimentary close or signature block.
