If someone is applying to a job at a tech start up, what should their resume look like?
It's important to tailor one's resume to the job and industry they are in. For instance, a candidate applying to a tech start up should have a resume that reflects the values of that industry; it should strike a balance between being youthful, creative, and professional. To start, the candidate's name and contact information should be at the top and centered, there should be no images, and the candidate should include hobbies and interests relevant to the tech industry and/or the position they are applying for.
What is the best way to improve one's writing?
By reading (specifically, reading material that is similar to that which you are writing), and practicing!
Subject: Study Skills
What are effective study skills?
It varies person to person! The most important aspect of an "effective" approach to studying is understanding how the individual best understands and retains information, and thus how one is able to successfully master the material at hand. Some people are more visual learners, some learn best by reading, and some by listening to material being taught to them. Once that determination is made, an organized, well thought out plan can be constructed.
