You work in the language and communication industry. People expect your reading and writing skills in all areas of your life to be impeccable—it’s your job, after all. If you can’t communicate well, then how are people going to expect you to do your job correctly? A typo in a local family restaurant’s menu, while it may make us giggle in amusement, is not going to keep us from coming back. However, a grammatical or syntactical error in one of your emails, for example, can make you look careless and unprofessional. Make sure you revise and proofread everything you write, whether it’s a casual, one-sentence email or a 20-page proposal. If you write your texts and emails without punctuation, start making it a habit to write them grammatically correct. After all, the last thing you want is to have your carefully constructed brand and image to be dented by something as simple as a comma.
