(I originally posted these tips on Twitter. @sweetcareers)
- If you need to write a term paper, look for ways to write on a topic related to your field or industry, even in unrelated classes.
- Try to identify, early in college, the type of writing expected in your field. Get samples of this type of writing.
- I like this idea – one writing professor I know has students interview professionals in their fields of interest to find out what type of writing is required – it can vary greatly from field to field and from industry to industry.
- While a student, keep a file of writing samples from courses.
