Writing essays can be hard in college, especially if you’re not used to writing them regularly. Whether you’re filling out an application, writing an essay for your English class, or working on a research paper for one of your upper-level classes, it can be challenging to put together an essay that conveys your message effectively while still sounding like yourself and meeting the requirements of the assignment. Luckily, by following these eight steps, you can easily write a great essay that will impress all of your professors and help you stand out among your peers; I know this because it’s how I write my essay.
1) Don’t forget about titles
It’s easy to write an essay without much structure, and a good title is an important part of making sure your readers understand what you’re trying to say. Use keywords that prospective students might use in searches for help (e.g., how to write a college essay or to write college essays tips). The titles should be simple yet enticing—something that will prompt people who need help with their essay writing to click through. Whenever www.writemyessays.org, I make sure my titles are catchy and short.
2) Get rid of all the parts that don’t matter
This can be one of your first steps in writing an essay. You want to highlight only those parts that will make a big difference in your paper. These are usually quotations or figures that you can put down in front of your readers. But never miss anything important. You should identify everything that will go into making a great essay, but don’t just write everything you have at hand and expect it to work out well. There is a golden rule here: use only what is needed!
3) Keep the most important parts in the front
Studies have shown that when writing essays, including a hook at the beginning of your paper, make it more likely that readers will pay attention and read to completion. Start with something intriguing, like a quote or an engaging first sentence—whatever works best for you! Do your best to stay organized: Most people find essay writing intimidating. Because of this, many writers get overwhelmed and forget to include all their notes in their final draft.
4) Write a detailed outline
Sometimes students get stuck on a writing assignment because they lack structure. Writing an outline forces you to think through and map out your ideas before putting them down on paper, making it easier to write that essay or business memo for work. An outline also gives you something concrete to come back to if you wander off-topic or get distracted by other things. If you’re struggling with writing essays for college, try outlining your next paper first; many students find it helpful to clarify their thoughts and organize their arguments more effectively.
5) Stay focused on your main idea
Make sure you focus on that essay’s main idea and stay true to it. This means keeping your topic narrow enough to drive home your argument. Don’t try to write about everything at once; instead, choose a single event or theme to talk about in detail and build from there. Be sure to tie it all together in a strong conclusion.
6) Add more details through effective transitions
Effective transitions are great for writing an essay that flows from one idea to another. Use effective transitions at the beginning of your sentences, particularly in your introduction, to let readers know what’s coming next in your essay. You can also use effective transitions throughout your essay to develop each point.
7) Avoid generalizations and vague statements
Using a general statement is fine if you support it with specific details. Otherwise, it’s just an opinion that carries no weight and offers little to help your reader understand why they should believe what you’re saying. For example, instead of saying I love college, try; My favorite part about college is attending football games on Friday nights. The second sentence adds information that supports why you like college so much.
8) Proofread before you publish
It may seem obvious, but proofreading is a must before publishing your college essay. You’ve likely put in a lot of work (and probably stress) writing your essay, so it’s important to make sure that it looks as good as possible when you hit publish. Pay special attention to sentence structure and grammar; even if you’ve had an English teacher in high school or college, keep in mind that they were likely pretty strict with grammar. Are there any topics that feel sketchy or vague? Make sure you back up these statements with clear examples. If there are areas where information could be better explained, make those changes—but if you’re not sure about something, play it safe and stick with what you have.

Germany’s exports to Iran rose 12.7 percent year-on-year from January to November 2022 to around 1.5 billion euros ($1.6 billion), data from the country’s federal statistics office showed.
That exceeded the full-year volume for 2021 of around 1.4 billion euros, but remains a fraction of total exports from Europe’s largest economy, which reached 1.38 trillion euros in 2021.
In a meeting between Head of Iran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture (ICCIMA) Gholam-Hossein Shafeie and Chairman of the Board of the German Federal Association for Economic Development and Foreign Trade (BWA) Michael Schumann in Tehran in last July, the two sides discussed ways of expanding economic relations between the two countries.
In the meeting, Shafeie criticized German government’s restrictions on issuing visa for Iranian businessmen, saying that facilitation of visa issuance is a prerequisite for the expansion of trade ties between the two countries.
Stating that Germany has always been Iran’s first trade partner in Europe, the ICCIMA head said: “After the nuclear deal, Germany was the first country to restart relations with Iran and the volume of trade between the two sides increased by 60 percent in a short time. But after the withdrawal of the U.S. from the JCPOA, the volume of economic exchanges between Iran and Germany decreased by 50 percent.”
He further praised Germany’s efforts for maintaining economic ties with the Islamic Republic and said: “I hope your visit can help activate the commercial capacities of both sides further. Especially with the new situation and the war in Ukraine, cooperation between Iran and Germany can have good results for our region and Europe.”
Shafeie further pointed to the automotive, agriculture, and education sectors as attractive fields for cooperation between the two sides, saying:” We are becoming the hub of automobile manufacturing in the region and we need new technologies in agriculture due to droughts and limited water resources.”
The official noted that ICCIMA is seeking to establish an office in Germany, adding “We are doing our best to increase the volume of trade with Germany. Fortunately, the conditions are better than in the past and it is possible for the delegations to meet in person. I hope that the next meeting of the two countries’ joint economic committee will be held as soon as possible to help the development of trade between the two sides.”
Schumann for his part stated that currently, 1,300 people from different companies and research institutes in Germany are members of BWA, saying: “Our goal is to find emerging markets across the globe. This association helps German companies to find business partners in the world and supports international companies to operate in Germany.”
The World Bank is concerned that “further adverse shocks” could push the global economy into recession in 2023, with small states especially vulnerable, informs Bloomberg.
The warning is contained in an abstract for the bi-annual “Global Economic Prospects” report due for release and visible on the group’s Open Knowledge Repository website.
Even without another crisis, global growth this year “is expected to decelerate sharply, reflecting synchronous policy tightening aimed at containing very high inflation, worsening financial conditions, and continued disruptions from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine,” the World Bank said.
“Urgent global and national efforts” are needed to mitigate the risk of such a downturn as well as debt distress in emerging market and developing economies (EMDEs), where investment growth is expected to remain below the average of the past two decades, the Washington-based lender said.
“It is critical that EMDE policy makers ensure that any fiscal support is focused on vulnerable groups, that inflation expectations remain well anchored, and that financial systems continue to be resilient,” it said.
Similar demands have been made by central bankers from around the world as they aggressively raise interest rates to ease price pressures while governments support businesses and households by containing energy costs.
International Monetary Fund Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva started 2023 with a warning that the world faces “a tough year, tougher than the year we leave behind.” One-third of the global economy will be in recession because the US, the EU and China are all slowing down simultaneously, she told CBS’s ‘Face the Nation’ in an interview.
Greece’s strong economic rebound from the COVID-19 crisis is being put to the test by surging energy and food prices and renewed global uncertainty, according to a new OECD report.
The latest OECD Economic Survey of Greece says continued policy reforms over recent years have been a key factor behind the country’s robust post-pandemic recovery and have put the economy in a stronger position to face current headwinds.
GDP has returned to pre-pandemic levels, helped by effective government support, a revival in tourism and exports, and improved investor and consumer confidence. Employment growth has been strong, creating over a quarter of a million new jobs since before the start of the pandemic, reducing the unemployment rate to a 12-year low of 11.6%.
To sustain the recovery, the Survey recommends to better allocate public spending, strengthen public revenues, improve the functioning of the labour market and keep up efforts to create a more dynamic business sector.
“Greece’s robust and targeted policy response to the COVID-19 pandemic secured a strong and rapid recovery. The government’s ‘Greece 2.0’ recovery plan is already laying the strong foundations for Greece’s ability to tackle future challenges,” OECD Secretary-General Mathias Cormann said, presenting the Survey alongside Greek Prime Minister Kyriákos Mitsotákis. “Ensuring the ambitious reform and investment agenda is fully implemented will help to further improve opportunities for businesses and households and will be essential for the Greek economy to navigate past the current headwinds towards a path of sustainable growth.”
Structural reforms are the key to continued economic and social progress, the Survey says, as high energy and other key commodity prices, especially since Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine, are slowing Greece’s recovery. Inflation peaked at 12.1% in October 2022 – its highest rates in 25 years – which is weakening demand, delaying investment and setting back recent gains in purchasing power for households. GDP growth is expected to moderate from 5.1% in 2022 to near 1% in 2023 and recover to approach 2% in 2024.
To buffer the inflation shock, the government has expanded energy and fuel price subsidies. This has, however, delayed the return of the primary budget surplus to its medium-term target of 1.5% to 2% of GDP, which weighs on Greece’s ability to access less expensive financing for investment.
While reducing high rates of poverty, the Greek economy still leaves many people behind, the Survey says. The share of youth in work lags other OECD countries, despite recent improvements. Legal reforms are improving gender equality but, in practice, and despite progress, relatively few women earn an income from work. Greece benefits less than it could from the skills of its foreign-born workforce, even as employers across a growing number of sectors report increasing difficulties recruiting staff.
The government’s ‘Greece 2.0’ reform and investment plan for 2021-26 aims to address many of the economic challenges facing the country through measures to improve the business climate, advance digitalisation, support the green economy transition and improve training and skills. The Survey says realising the full potential of the plan will require concerted effort to improve how the public sector operates and delivers but, if well implemented, it will substantially raise growth prospects and incomes.
The Survey sets out a number of recommendations to help sustain the recovery, raise incomes, and achieve the transition to a net zero emission economy.
They include keeping debt-to-GDP ratios on a downward path by returning the primary budget balance to surplus from 2023 and to better allocate funding to areas that support economic growth such as education, infrastructure, and active labour market policies.
Promoting flexible work arrangements and encouraging young fathers to take-up the new paid paternity leave would encourage more women to get jobs, including in areas where skills are in short supply. Engaging more adults in higher-quality retraining programmes can ensure that the workforce has the skills to make the most of the opportunities offered by the digital and green transitions.
Continued efforts to foster banks’ health, by clearing remaining non-performing loans and rebuilding their capital bases, are needed to finance private investment and sustain economic growth. Encouraging firms’ investment and growth are important to ensuring a stronger economy over the longer-term.
With a special focus on achieving the transition to a net zero emission economy, the Survey points out that greenhouse gas emissions remain significant in Greece. Replacing fossil fuels with renewable energy sources will require energy consumers to invest and adapt. Transforming the energy system cost-effectively will be essential given the large investment needs of the transition to net zero.
The Survey identifies and discusses three key policies that could make substantial cuts to Greece’s greenhouse gas emissions – higher and more consistent prices for CO2 emissions, housing renovations, and making public transport more attractive.
