Good writing skills are a key asset at every stage of your career, from the moment you write your very first cover letter and resume/CV until your retirement party. This is especially true for administrative professionals who are responsible for a significant amount of written communication on a daily basis. You don’t have to be a published author or hold a degree in comparative literature to be a skilled writer. Sound written communication is advantageous for ambitious administrative professionals at all levels and across a wide range of industries. Whether you’re looking to impress an HR manager, secure a promotion or improve your everyday communication with your boss, colleagues and clients, polishing your writing may be one of the best things you can do.
