I am a junior here at Saint Louis University. My area of study is Information Technology Management. Writing and persuasion are key’s attributes to have in employees at the workplace. With the integration of computers in the workplace, the need for writing has grown exponentially. Writing in the workplace is now expected to be accomplished faster and with more precision. Writing emails, memos, and pdf files are all part of a normal days work. Additionally, the need for persuasion has also grown. An employee’s ability to persuade co-workers and superiors is directly related to how successful that employee will be. Also, competition among organizations has given rise for persuasion to play a key role in alluring customers and funding.
