Description

Proofreading isn't fun. But it is necessary. Learn the best proofreading techniques to help you have fewer errors in your writing and have your writing appear more professional.

PROOFREADING TECHNIQUES

I'll walk you through what to do on each proofreading pass through the text.

LEARN ENGLISH GRAMMAR TO HELP YOUR PROOFREADING

After you'll learn proofreading techniques, you will learn the basics of English grammar. We'll start with basics like the building blocks of a sentence and once you feel comfortable with that, we'll move on to writing sentences together so they read well.

HOW THIS WILL HELP YOUR CAREER

At any job, you must write. You will write everything ranging from texts and instant messages to email to fill-length documents. This course will help you master grammar so you can impress with your writing no matter what you are writing or with whom you are communicating.

Your co-workers, managers, or potential clients will often get their first impression of you from your writing. Whether it's a potential client visiting your website or a manager or a potential employer, sometimes they see your work like a resume or a report or an email pitch before they have a chance to meet you.

If you make a bad first impression with your writing, you may not get a chance to talk to your client on go on a job interview. 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 TOOL

I was a Computer Science major in college. But because I was interested in writing, 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.
