This writing infographic explains why good writing skills are needed for better jobs. From Grammarly, the chart says those who are stronger writers are more successful in their positions and get paid more as well.
This finding is based on the profiles of over 448 freelance professionals on an online staffing platform across eight different categories and how they were rated by employers. The Grammarly reviewers also looked at errors related to spelling, punctuation and grammar. This study showed the best-reviewed freelancers in all categories had the least amount of mistakes per 100 words.
The writing infographic discussed the results of this analysis more in-depth, covering topics such as job earnings in different industries. Grammarly notes they "cannot imply causation between writing well and job performance/salary" but do believe employees are judged on the quality of their writing.
