Resume Writing Tip - Avoid Spelling Errors

Reviewers look at hundreds of resumes to find the ones they feel give the employer the best fits for the position. They’re selecting those they believe will most successfully carry out the tasks and responsibilities for that particular position.

If your resume has a misspelled word or a grammatical mistake, your resume might get tossed out. Be sure to proofread the resume several times over. If necessary, ask a friend to read it. Reviewers like us, read resumes with a red pen. If the resume is marked in red for typos and grammatical mistakes, we'll throw them aside.

NOTE: The same applies to cover letters.
