Here are some tips ...
- Work on your writing skills. These are particularly important as in many cases the only impressions people will have of you is through your writing. If you are experiencing any difficulties, drop by the JIBC Library for books and online resources to help you.
- Check out the Writing Skills section of the JIBC Library’s Study Skills bibliography.
- Use the "buddy system" – find someone else in your home, work group or study group who might be willing to look over your written work and suggest improvements. It is prudent to have someone read your material before it is submitted.
