Do what you love. We’ve heard that phrase a million times. It sounds so simple, so obvious, that we don’t really catch it for what it is: bad advice. “What’s that?” you say. “I shouldn’t do what I love?” Well, in a way, no you shouldn’t. But before you have a panic attack, let’s back up. I’m not asking you to resign yourself to a life of paper pushing and boredom. I would never do that to you.

Spelling and grammar checks through software can never replace a human set of eyes that review for syntax and other errors in a document.

Employers can dismiss a candidate’s application and resume for many reasons. One common reason is lack of a professional cover letter and/or resume.
