Why Do Business Redundancies Matter?

I’m not out to fix writing in the corporate world—I need too much help myself. But I would like to share a few tips and perhaps help a few people improve their resumes or cover letters. Or maybe help a company write a better job description, one that allows them to attract a more qualified candidate. Ideally, these tips might eliminate some redundancies in emails. I believe that once you start to tighten your writing (by eliminating redundancies) you will find that all of your communication improves—written and verbal.

So why do redundancies matter?

One of the most sought after traits in industry is the ability to communicate clearly and succinctly. Eliminating redundancies is a big step to accomplishing that.
