    The process of communication means a great deal to me. It is the livelihood of almost every moment of every day of my life. I not only communicate during my time with my family, but I also communicate with individuals all throughout my day at work. I have a key role at my job of trying to be the best communicator I am able to be. One part of my job is to be in charge of the customer service department, and this part of my position puts me in the hot seat for being able to communicate with people. I agree with the statement that “studying communication can help you succeed professionally.” (author’s last names, year published, pg. 8***use “p. 8” for indicating page numbers per APA format.)
