My name is Michael Kubik. I am senior at Saint Louis University and I’m in the process of getting an accounting and finance degree from the John Cook School of Business.

I was born and raised in St. Louis and am an avid sports fan. I went to Chaminade College Preparatory and graduated in 2008.
Writing in the work place has become extremely important in my different ways. From memos and formal letters to a simple email. One will encounter and create several pieces of writing at everyday. They are used for many different things including, just to inform someone of a change in policy to persuading them to buy a product. People use this writing and persuasion to help themselves further their career. There is no time when this is more prevalent than in a cover letter and resume. These document are used by companies as a first look at a potential employee and if they are not written correctly the potential client could not even be asked to interview for a open position. Therefore, the use to marketing oneself to a company through a cover letter and resume becomes persuasion to the purest sense. In conclusion, writing in the workplace has become an important everyday activity that has many different forms and companies expect their employees to accomplish with success.
