Through the use of podcast interviews, this project examines the advanced writing skills workplace professionals are looking for when hiring new employees, and provides students with a resource to learn what they need to know about written communication in their field of study. This sample is from my initial proposal. I provided the abstract to give the most precise and detailed explanation of this project. The literature review sample shows one of the sources I used and how I synthesized it into my thesis. This project was presented at the Showcase of Undergraduate Research Excellence in April 2016.
