Although creative writing often possesses a negative or less than valuable connotation as a major, the ability to articulate thoughts in a structurally written manner is an extremely attractive characteristic to many employers. It illustrates an ability to successfully and efficiently convey analysis, critiques, and solutions to problems. If writing is an arduous and daunting process, considering a course or two at a local community college is a viable solution.
