Free Service to Auto-Correct Grammar, Spelling, and Punctuation – Expiring Soon

Career Services at Illinois Institute of Technology announces a limited pilot program with Grammarly, an expert online service that checks for grammar, spelling, and punctuation mistakes.

To better serve our students in the preparation for summer internships, OPT and full-time positions, Career Services and Grammarly will provide complimentary services for cover letters, statements of purpose, writing samples and other letters associated with student job searches through Spring Break 2015 – March 23, 2015.

This initiative is open on a limited basis to 250 undergraduate and graduate students, on a first-come, first-served basis.

If students find this to be a useful resource, we look forward to extending this opportunity to students during the 2015-16 academic school year, or earlier.
