This tool is highly innovative and would benefit any organization. I have recently seen corporations begging for this type of soft skill development, and for college students to be able to learn these skills, it breaks the mold for business curriculums.

I found this product to be interesting and a creative way to simulate the work environment. It is extremely important for students to develop the soft skills that employers want and this product offers the opportunity for users to practice and evaluate these skills through answering a series of emails. The self-assessment helps them pinpoint the areas that need additional work.
