Whether you are looking for a new job or marketing a product, the way you speak and write impacts how people perceive you.
Having good grammar helps you come across as being more intelligent, educated and professional. Poor grammar can put off clients, particularly if it is in your written messages. A single mistake isn’t a big ideal, but if it happens repeatedly it suggests poor attention to detail.
It’s fine if there are some grammatical mistakes, but not so much if you’re writing a pitch for a proposal or even a cover letter for a job interview.
If you plan to lead others, good communication skills and good grammar are essential. On the other hand, bad grammar will detract you from the message or image you are trying to portray.
In short, it can make you look less professional and your important words become less powerful when filled with grammatical errors.
