But if you make a great first impression with your writing, it may open doors and give you a chance to prove yourself further.MY OWN EXPERIENCE WITH WRITING AS A CAREER TOOLI was a Computer Science major in college. But because I was interested in writing, my ability to write better always helped me stand out above my peers. I always had a better than average resume, and got better jobs than my peers. When I went into online business, writing helped me write my books, blog posts, and other website content. In online marketing, writing helps me write better titles and descriptions of my products. Writing also helps me have more efficient online communication. I use it every day and it is in nearly everything I do. This is why I highly recommend it for you too.RESPONSIVE AND CARING INSTRUCTOR: WORLD-CLASS STUDENT SUPPORTIf you have questions about improving your proofreading skills, I am here to help! I answer 99% of student questions within 24 hours.
