The Harvard Business Review reports that people who use poor grammar will have a difficult time getting hired.
“Good grammar is credibility, especially on the internet. In blog posts, on Facebook statuses, in e-mails, and on company websites, your words are all you have. They are a projection of you in your physical absence,” says the story’s author.
Published author Anne Bromley is a writing instructor and consultant who will also share her secrets as instructor for the Professional Certificate in Business Writing program through SDSU’s College of Extended Studies during the fall semester that helps people get it right – or write – the first time.
