Articles provide great context for your reader to explore. It all depends on how the article is written though. For example, if your content is brief, concise and to the point then your reader will get the message. Some writers use this structure as a story in articles. Yet, are stories really purposeful in articles? Think about it for a second. Few writers maximize the structure of their articles. We like to offer our writers different ways to view their drafts, For the purposes of this blog, we want to propose three questions pertaining to LinkedIn:

  1. Have you ever applied for a job when it is in high demand?
    2. What are the most important aspects to consider in your cover letter?
    3. When do you think it is appropriate for HR or hiring managers to contact you with follow-up questions after submitting an application?
