Module Update: Co-Op Writing and Grammar Strategies

Module Screen Shot

That’s right! Another update!

For this update we focused on the content. We have incorporated more information on effective resume writing and cover letter writing strategies.

We will be releasing more information on new products and other module updates later this month!

It’s bit of a ride so I’ll provide you with off ramps as we go…

Computers are getting faster every year based on something called Moore’s Law. This is an observation that for the same money, you can buy a computer with about twice the computing power every 12-18 months (it used to be 24 months).
