Do you dream of visiting, if not occupying, the "C-Suite," where the executives who run the company sit and meet? Rising to executive roles of CEO, COO, and CFO generally requires that you get an advanced degree, usually a Master of Business Administration (MBA). If your career trajectory is aimed at occupying one of the C-suite offices, your first step should be to consider an MBA or other master's degree in business.
“What's your major?” It's often the first question students ask one another when they meet on campus. Choosing a major in college is one of the most important decisions a student will make during their education journey. Some students know early on what they’d like to major in, and ultimately, launch their career. However, most students are unsure when they enter college just what type of career is best suited for them. If that's you, don't feel bad; you're not alone.
As a native New Englander originally from The Bay State, also known as Massachusetts, I am immune (well, nearly) to the dreaded words, “Winter Storm Watch/Warning” — an all-too-common phrase uttered by weather forecasters between the months of December through March.

Let’s admit it, at some point during perhaps a not-so-distant holiday season we’ve all received a gift and said something like, “oh, this is lovely – thank you so much – how thoughtful – can’t wait to use this, wear it, etc.” Of course, what we’re really secretly saying to ourselves is more like, “This doesn’t fit my lifestyle or my fashion style — I don’t have a purpose for this – what am I going to do with this?” Thus, begins the dilemma – return it? Recycle or donate it? Re-gift it?
The issue I see most often in student writing is the use of a pronoun that does not refer to one specific noun.
What is a Vague Pronoun?
A pronoun can be considered vague if it doesn't clearly refer to a specific person or thing in the sentence (the antecedent). Using demonstrative pronouns, such as ‘it’ or ‘those,’ without a clear antecedent can cause confusion.
As the writing specialist for Johnson & Wales University’s College of Online Education, it is my job to help students to improve their writing skills. Today, I bring you a common grammatical quandary—what to do with a singular indefinite pronoun.
Let’s review. A pronoun is a word that can function by itself as a noun phrase (e.g. I, you, he, they, it). An indefinite pronoun is a pronoun that does not refer to any person, amount, or thing in particular.
