    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my article https://hubpages.com/business/how-to-me … -interview  What can I do to improve? Thank you very much!

      Link gives a "Page Not Found" error. Are you sure your Hub is published and functional?

    Hi Rox,
    Although your article has immense potential, too much improvement is needed.
    Your content is good, but the writing is full of errors.
    What I have observed is, you write the way you talk. That's why your writing is informal and has missing verbs and incorrect tenses.

    Some mistakes:
    One of the reasons why my business still existing - I have a great team. The verb 'is' is missing.

    If advert states - 'good computer skills' answer 'I know how to turn it on and off' not quite what one would expected!
    One would expect is the correct grammar.

    in this case - how you applying for a job. In particular. The verb are is missing

    briefly mention of non related experience - it won't be too bad. Should be brief mention

    I received CV 5 pages long and I can't find what I'm looking for.
    Wrong order of words, and has a missing comma before and.
    'I received a five-pages-long CV, and I couldn't find what I had been looking' for sounds better.

    I have seen some CV where people had few years 'missing'. I didn't want to guess what happened.
    'I have seen CVs in which few years of experience of the candidates had been missing. I didn't want to guess what had happened.'

    There are many errors like these.
    Please get it proofread.
    Good luck.

      Pen has pointed out plenty of things to correct, also note the very first word, useful, is misspelled as "usefull."

      Here are some general suggestions as well:
      1) Be aware that soon all half-width capsules will be made full-width, so make sure all the pictures will look okay in a larger resolution.
      2) Use bullet points in the "Going for an interview" section.
      3) Capitalize key words in headings. You did this in the first but not the others.
      4) Talk about your Amazon capsule. If we're not convinced you haven't actually read the book, it'll come across as a sales pitch more than a useful recommendation.

      Like Pen said, the biggest issue is proofreading. Once your Hub reads nicely, fixing the other issues shouldn't take too long. Best of luck.

        Hi.
        1) thanks - I found info on this and I'm working on the issue.
        2) thanks - will do. Although I hate bullet points (I feel that bullet points quite patronising)
        3) I'll remove all of them
        4) removed.

        Thank you for your time reading and listing issues!

    Use Grammarly, it helps correct some issues. You might like it.
