What Spell Check Doesn't Catch Can Hurt Your Resume

Posted on at



Writing up your resume? Many word processing programs offer the option to check spelling and grammar in your text. This can be a terrific time-saver to help eliminate many common errors in cover letters and resumes. As long as we don’t see the red or green zigzag markings under words, the document is good to go, right? Think again!

Testing A Person’s Character
 For interviewees who have attended many interviews at similar jobs, for instance, their questions are often ready before the questions are posed. For the prospective employer the answers may reveal a lot about a person’s experience and motivation, but not necessarily much about a person’s character or how they will fit in with fellow employees. The unexpected question will often take an interviewee by surprise, especially when an interview begins in a stereotypical way.
