Why Writing Well Matters (graded)
This unit’s reading includes a list of reasons why writing matters as well as information about formal writing. After reading this, take some time to contemplate the importance of these concepts.
Your initial post must include the following:
In your first paragraph, consider that you are an employer seeking to hire someone. There are only two applicants and their IT skills and credentials seem equal, but one has a cover letter with many grammar errors and an informal style that seems inappropriate. You decide to hire the person whose letter was well written. Why was this an appropriate decision, and what could happen if an employee consistently makes errors?
In your second paragraph, write about your comfort level and experiences in writing in a formal style.
Do not perform research for this discussion; use your critical thinking skills.
