Recently, a senior HR generalist wrote to me about a complex series of issues with his job search that he needed to address. His e-mail was one full page of text without a single paragraph break and with numerous typos and grammatical errors.
It was obvious that his written communication skills were his biggest problem. We had to fix those before addressing his cover letter, e-mail and resume.
Communication is one of the most important soft skills that help us reach our full professional capacity and earning potential.
