writing a business memo

Several students applied for a semester-long educational technology internship with the President of the BC
Online Campus (that name and address can be found on the BC website). Assume you are Ms. Badnews, the
President’s administrative assistant, and you have been asked to contact those applicants who were not offered
an internship. 143 applied for 2 spots, making it quite competitive. It is expected this will be an annual
internship.
Delivering bad news is touchy … do your best to deliver the information is as positive a tone as possible.
Remember, you don’t want to discourage anyone from continuing their studies. Using a proper business type
memo format, make yourself the recipient of the letter to create a memo on delivering this “bad news.” This may
require you to do some research on how to properly create a memo.
