"About the Word "Thing/s"

Anyone with a command of the English language may be annoyed by your use of the word "thing/s".
- It is overused, it's one syllable.
- It's used to describe everything the writer can not find another word to describe.
- It is trite and non-descript.

Whether you're writing a letter or a grad school statement, take time to be descriptive in your writing; it can make all the difference!

Wow! Polar Careers has been busy! Between Feb 5, 2023 and March 6, 2023 student learning and event participation as well as employer engagement were off the rails! The stats speak for themselves; however, more importantly students at Ohio Northern University are using these great opportunities to network and succeed in future endeavors!
✔ Suit Up with JC Penney (Feb 5) provided 54 students with professional clothing at deeply discounted prices
✔ An Employer Nursing Panel (Feb 7) highlighted recruiting practices from eight regional healthcare employers (18 recruiters). 45 student nurses learned about hiring trends
✔ 249 students and 112 employers featuring 232 recruiters attended the Winter Career and Graduate School Fair (Feb 16)
✔ Community Pharmacy Tabling/Lunch and Learn (Feb 22) with five nationwide pharmacy chains. 15 recruiters interacted with 43 pharmacy students
✔ Humanities and Social Sciences Internship and Job Fair (March 6) provided 26 recruiters (19 employers) with an opportunity to connect with 89 students.


Wow! This is great :)
