I just applied for my first writing job recently and even though the application was short, it was relatively nerve-wracking.
At first, I was unsure of what other skills could compliment my writing. I always thought of writing as a storytelling means, but this was asking for more. Something told me that saying I was skilled at Microsoft Excel and Word was not going to fit the bill. I tried googling the question to see if help lay on a random website with tips for job applications or a writer’s blog. However, I only found results for compliments that writers like to receive, like ‘your writing is so thoughtful,’ which is definitely not what I googled. It took me a while to think of qualities that compliment my writing skills and I think that we all should have a go-to list of some examples. Skills will vary based on the writing position that you are going for, so I will try to cover a wide range.
These are all the tips that I could think of, but do you know of any tools or skills that can compliment your writing that are not listed above? Leave them in the comments below, so we can all learn!
