First of all, I’d be honest that English is not my first language, so the concern of being grammar-correct in my writing is always in my mind. Recently I found a great tool which really help me in improving my writing and boost my confidence. That tool is called “Grammarly“. I don’t remember how exactly I come across this great tool but after a brief visit to their website, I decided to sign up immediately. After a few days of usage, I must say that even the free account offers a lot of help in catching spelling and grammatic mistakes.
One of the great features I really like is the ability to use it online, for example, writing a blog post on my WordPress website. Other great applications of this tool I can come up with are: job application, resume, copywriting, student term papers, writing your own book…etc.
They offer free plugins for major browsers such as Firefox & Google Chrome, however, it’s not available for the Microsoft Edge yet. I also found out Grammarly is currently not available for Google Docs yet. However, you can use the Grammary Editor for your writing and then transfer it over to Google Docs if needed. You can also install Grammarly‘s add-in for Microsoft Office. Another option is to install Grammarly for Windows which is a native app for your computer.
Anyway, I highly recommend Grammarly to assist you with writing, it will really improve your writing and conveys your idea and message much better. It may finally help you land that great job you have been looking for with your resume & cover letter proofread by Grammarly before applying.
