Complete your document
- Work on your layout
- Proofread effectively
How often should you proofread your document?
Only when you don't know your recipient.
When you have time.
You only need to proofread the first time you have written a document; if you’ve saved a sample it’s no longer necessary.
Is humour an effective tool for professional communication?
No, never. This is strictly business and you will tarnish your reputation.
Yes, to lighten the mood. Everyone enjoys a good laugh.
Only when exchanging emails or informal communication with colleagues you know well.
Is spelling important when finishing a professional written document?
No, as long as the recipient gets the point.
Only in the first exchange.
Yes, but auto-correction has made manual spell-checking an obsolete practice.
