Hello All,

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.  After I finish my undergraduate work, I plan to move onto graduate school and work towards a Masters of Accountancy degree and then sit for my CPA. 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.

 

Best,

Michael Kubik

    Micheal,
    Your observation that a applying for a job and perparing a resume is “persuasion to the purest sense” is a very important one. When applying for a job you are basicly trying to persaude them that you are better for the company then everyone else applying.

    Michael,

    I completely agree as well that cover letters and resumes are most important in professional writing. There are so many ways to write resumes but companies are really looking for people to exude that knack of professionalism in their writing and how they structure their letters and resumes.
