Write your main takeaways from the class “Business Writing.” Don’t refer to or get influenced by what and how others have written. Rather, recall the concepts discussed in the class and write them in your words. Focus on key concepts or things you learned and how you will implement the same to transform your writing style.
Don’t use bullet points. Write in paragraph form. Your content should have at least 150 words.
All the best!
