Blogging opens up the opportunity for individuals to post their writing to a larger audience in a structured setting, a situation which more frequently than not induces the individual to grow as a writer. While maintaining a blog can be fairly time consuming, there are many benefits for doing so, especially for a student. To a potential employer, a blog can act as a helpful addition to a resume, portraying the student’s capabilities as a writer, technologically savvy individual, and helping the student stand out from the pool of other applicants.
