It's true; really, writers are going to rule the world! How? Good question, you are so smart, I bet you're a writer, huh?
As a college student, currently taking Business 205, I can reassure you of the accuracy of my statements. Well, actually, they don't really word it quite like I did, in my textbook, but it means the same thing, sorta...
In the textbook, "Business Communication," by Guffey and Loewy, it says, "Businesses are crying out---they need to have people who write better," said Gaston Caperton, executive and College Board president. The ability to write opens doors to professional employment.
It goes on to say, writing is a marker of high-skill, high-wage, professional work, according to Bob Kerrey, university president and chair of the National Commission on Writing. If you can't express yourself clearly, he says, you limit your opportunities for many positions.
According to a Fortune Magazine article, "Those in the highest 20 percent in writing ability earn more than three times what those with poor writing skills make."
When an executive found that a couple of people were good candidates to work for his company, he squared them off in a writing contest. Guess who got the job? The better writer! I told you how smart you were earlier!
The other day, I got an email from a copy writing company telling me they had noticed I was one of their top writers and hadn't gotten any jobs off their job board lately.
I was specifically asked if I could help them out and go back to their job board and get some jobs. Can you imagine how those words made me feel? How that built up my confidence? It was significant.
Most people spend money on their hobbies, think about it, we are making money doing what we love to do.
So, writing friends, keep your chin up, we are going to take over the world! Mewahhahahaha
