This paper looks at writing and other means of communication as they can help an individual in three basic circumstances: on the job, moving ahead in a company, and moving on to a new company. There are three ways to make all written communications clear: choose the best words, use the right tone, and give visual shape to the letter. The successful business person is organized, and so are his or her communications. Communications need to be fit; that means disciplined, solid, and trim. An idea is only as good as its presentation. Tips for moving ahead include the following: keep an accomplishments file, honor all commitments, give credit for assistance from coworkers in writing, do right by your secretary, never be too busy to write a letter of commendation or recommendation, and network regularly and productively. Guidance is offered on deciding when it is time to consider leaving a current job as well as on job hunting tools, a good cover letter for a resume, thank you letters to interviewers, and proper notice to current employers.
