Revisit Concision

  • Page ID




    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.
