  • Daily Writing Tips
    [When it comes to basic grammar rules, even the most skilled writer can use a little reminder every now and then. The Daily Writing Tips blog was created with that exact sentiment in mind. Every day the team publishes a new article on a variety of writing topics, from a discussion of That vs. Which to 44 Resume Writing Tips. One particularly helpful article, English Grammar 101: All You Need to Know, is a one-stop-shop for basic grammar rules. Readers will not only find an overview of basic sentence structure, going over the difference between clauses and phrases, but also individual sections on the eight parts of speech: noun, pronoun, adjective, verb, adverb, preposition, conjunction, and interjection. Archived posts date back to 2007 and are sorted into a variety of helpful categories, including Grammar, Misused Words, Style, and Writing Basics.

  • Purdue Online Writing Lab: Job Search Writing

    [Applying for jobs can be a time-consuming, nerve-racking venture even for the experienced professional. It can be especially daunting for recent graduates who are entering the workforce for the very first time. The Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL), well known for its helpful writing resources, has created this practical guide to assist with Job Search Writing. Readers will find four sections to explore: Preparing an Application, Job Search Letters, Resumes and Vitas, and Video Resumes. This last section may be of special interest as it discusses the use of video aids for job applications, from planning to filming to editing footage. Readers interested in a more traditional application may appreciate the ample collection of Model Letters or a helpful discussion on resume page length among other great resources."] -- MMB, The Scout Report, Volume 22, Number 35, 09 September 2016
