Proofing, Preparation, and Resume Follow Up
Proofing & Preparation
The resume and cover letter are done. But what is as important as the words that have been written?
No errors in grammar, spelling or punctuation!
Even one mistake can cause a resume to be discarded because the job seeker has just made a bad impression. The hiring manager may think, "What type of employee would this person be if he/she can't even submit an error free resume?"
The solution is to make sure a resume and cover letter have been read and re-read multiple times. Don't depend on spell-checker alone. Each word should be read. Then ask a trusted family member or friend to do the same.
