Now perhaps my catholic boys' school emphasized this skill-set more than most.. but how can a college grad (and semi-experienced professional) put together statements like the above to a potential employer?
until very recently, my mom was working with doctoral level students in a counseling program for a school in DC. She was always shocked at how poorly they wrote. And not just one or two, but the majority of them.

Going through high school, bachelor's programs, master's programs, and now as doctoral candidates. The lack of fundamentals is absolutely amazing.
