Article on writing a Case Study

This is about how you should write about your work. It gets more in depth than what I’m asking for here. Being able to write to this level about your work will be a great boost to getting an internship or job. Employers want to know what you did, why, what your thought and work process is like. However they also don’t want to read too much. Getting enough but not too much and being clear takes practice.
