It happened AGAIN this week here at Sloane Staffing, a staffing agency in South Florida. We had a perfectly good candidate apply for a position, only to be turned down by a typo on the FIRST LINE of his resume. There are some things candidates out there need to understand. As a recruiting agency, we do not update or make changes to your resume - that is your work. We do not have time to critique your CV line by line (we look at over 50 resumes in any given day.) Please take it upon yourself to read through your resume multiple times before submitting it, going through it with a fine tooth comb to ensure there are no spelling or grammatical errors. We also HIGHLY suggest that you have a friend or family member review your resume prior to submittal, or even sending it to a company that specializes in this, to make sure your resume is absolutely perfect before submitting. Attention to detail is so important here, especially at the executive level, or if you are applying for any sort of administrative or content position. In today’s world, with so many spell check options available, typos are absolutely inexcusable. We ask you, please! Before you submit your resume for one of our open positions, triple check your CV is free of any typos or grammatical errors. Our clients expect perfection, you could be their next new hire and they want to ensure you are the absolute perfect fit. So, in turn, we also expect perfection! Just think about it. Imagine we have two very similar candidates with the same background and experience apply for a really great job - and you miss out and are eliminated because of something that can be so easily fixed, your resume has a typo in it. Don’t be that person and hire someone if you need help with your resume!
