BLOG 2:  A 10-step guide to make your research paper abstract more effective

By Clarinda Cerejo

An abstract is like a movie trailer. It offers a preview, highlights key points, and helps the audience decide whether to view the entire work. Abstracts are the pivot of a research paper because many journal editorial boards screen manuscripts only on the basis of the abstract.

If your abstract doesn’t grab their attention and make a good first impression, there’s a good chance your research paper will be rejected at the outset. Moreover, even after your research paper is published, your abstract will be the first, and possibly only, thing readers will access through electronic searches. They will only consider reading the rest of the manuscript if they find your abstract interesting. (…)

Blog 1:  How to Describe Yourself in an Interview

By  Ronda Suder

Be the diamond in the rough they’re looking for.

Interviewers often speak to several candidates for a position before narrowing their selection and presenting an offer to the most desirable candidate. Through the process, the interviewer hopes to stumble upon that needle in the haystack. When this happens, it’s a huge relief given that it can take months for an organization to fill a position. According to HireVue, it takes an average of 42 days for companies to fill a position, and for some companies, it can take even longer.

In an ideal world, you’re that “diamond in the rough,” or maybe you’re simply the candidate that stood out the most amongst other qualified candidates. Either way, when you were asked in your interview how you would describe yourself, you knew how to use strong words and vocabulary to answer the question. Sure, you told the interviewer what they wanted to hear, but you did it from a place of authenticity, integrity, and thoughtfulness. As a result, you landed the job.

If you want this story to define you, it’s important to consider the language and vocabulary you use to answer the popular “How you would describe yourself?” during an interview. (…)
