Writing for a living can be a highly satisfying and rewarding job, albeit a competitive one to break into. Although many people can prove their competency in the area with professional qualifications, vocational experience as a writer is much rarer, and what employers really look for.
By successfully completing Professional Writing Placement, you will be able to prove that you intimately understand what is expected of you as a professional writer, and that you are able to meet these demands effectively. Moreover, postgraduate competencies in writing are indicative of a greater level of expertise, opening up the potential of a higher starting salary.
