What is your writing style?

1 Answers

I use AP style and can adjust to any form of writing as I have done many styles and writing comes natural for me. This company was phony especially Mickey, was over qualified for this job. After researching found this place to not be as diverse in hiring minorities even though they state this. Just felt like the company was not straight forward and God shielded me from a place I would have quit. If you come with a strong skill set and looking for a upfront place with good pay and benefits steer clear of this place don't think you can grow here from my interview conversations. They interview people and then repost the job and never get back to say yes or no. It's no big deal people understand you won't always land the job but honesty out the door does wonders if you are looking to land your feet at this establishment. Whoever land this role I wish them well as it may fit their personality. Thought it matched mine, however I found out that it would have not been a match. Good luck job seekers. Less
