Overall, the quality of this class was more than I had expected. Originally, I thought it was going to be focused more towards writing on literature. However, when I discovered that it was actually focused on writing about careers I really felt I could relate and I found a passion for it. Being Biochemistry major, my "specialty" is certainly not in writing. Despite my incompetence to write throughout the course I found that I was able to enjoy writing and employ various writing techniques when writing about what I love my future "career". I not only learned new writing techniques, but I also learned more about my field of study. One of the most valuable assignments done in this class was the mock interview. I enjoyed the opportunity to do further research on one of my favorite biotech companies. I not only gained more knowledge about the company but was able to learn what it takes to potentially ensure a career there. I also enjoyed writing the cover letter and discovering what is required to work as a biochemist. This class has sparked additional interest in both writing and my career. Further, I was able to polish up my ill prepared resume and practice writing for the workplace. I have to say this was the most practical writing class I have taken. I like how the teacher was able to connect the writing topics to each individual’s passion / field of study. I love the idea of blogs, rather than having to write a full essay. In today's society, more often we are encountered with small spurts of information then a full on essay. I know my blogs are information heavy, but I had a fun time writing them and sharing

Then they “rebuilt” us, teaching us new ways of writing and how to perform research properly, how to cite properly, all the little things. We would write about 3 papers a semester, each one would institute a new technique and we were expected to build upon these new techniques, incorporating everything we learned in the last essay(s) into the upcoming one. Each paper was around 8 pages and this proved not to be enough for a lot of us, we began to flourish by the end of the semester.…
