WebWench What did you mean by this? "judging by your writing skills, you could stand to put your focus there a year or two."
Thanks for the advice&I'll just do that. :)
I think she meant that your writing really isn't very good. Far to many 'like' words, bad punctuation, spelling's fine though, and too self centered. You write that you have a 3.5 GPA but how did you do in English Comp 101?
When you get into the real work world, you have to be able to communicate your ideas and observation to your co-workers and boss. If you send a memo or e-mail written like your original one, no one will take your seriously. Read some of the other postings here and on ***************** for examples on how to effectively write and communicate. People need help with their cars and have to be able to describe a problem to get a solution.
Read the opinion section of a major newspaper to see how ideas and opinions are written so people can understand what the writer is trying to say.
Writing as you did originally is fine for AOL IM, but not so much here, and not in the corporate world.
I'm not trying to be mean and nasty but just offering an observation and some guidance.
As to your original question, dump him. He's immature. Find someone in your college who has a future.
Good luck and regards.
BTW, I'm not the greatest speller either so I proofread my postings first. I do make spelling errors and I have others proofread my important memos and e-mails to make sure I get the point across.
