For most people there is nothing more threatening than a blank word processor screen. Originally it was a blank sheet of paper, but since most of us use word processors nowadays, the blinking cursor in your face has become the worst feeling in the world.
Unfortunately, most jobs nowadays require writing skills. Indeed, in a series of interviews that we conducted recently among vice presidents, directors and HR managers at world-class organizations, good writing skills were among the top desirable qualities they looked for in a candidate. And the more people rise in an organization the more they’ll need to be good writers.
Sadly, for most people writing is almost as appealing as getting a “root canal.”
In this series -in Spanish- we summarize “The 10 Most Common Mistakes People Make When They Write”. I hope you find them useful.
