One of the biggest moans we hear from graduate recruiters is that loads of graduate applications include grammar and spelling errors that could have been avoided by effective proofreading. Many graduate firms take these errors very seriously and as indicative of a causal attitude that they do not approve of. These errors often stop your applications from progressing. Compared with academic assignments, employers expect a much higher standard in terms of how you express yourself.
So to give yourself an edge with your job applications and to improve your academic writing, take advantage of this work shop offered jointly by CityCareers and Learning for Success on:
1st Mar. Review and proofread your essays and job applications, 13:00 – 13:50, in Room C303
The session is free and open to all City students. There’s no need to book; just come along.
If you miss a session, you will find the learning materials on the Learning Success Moodle page http://tiny.cc/learningsuccess
