    In all types of writing, but application writing in particular, concision and clarity remain desirable. Potential employers want to read your resume and cover letter quickly while also getting a feeling for what you bring to the table.

     In session three, you'll have the opportunity to revise your draft to say more with less -- that is, to add detail while using your word limitation more powerfully. 

    Read the document linked to the bottom of the screen.  Then view this video: TED Talk "Why Concision Might Save Your Life." 

    Then make a copy of this exercise and submit your eight revised sentences on the next slide.
