I mailed out my resume in response to an ad on Friday. Today I was looking at it and all of the sudden an error popped right out at me! I didn't notice it before and by golly I had been over and over that thing. I even had my husband and a friend of mine who is a job specialist look over it and none of us spotted it. The mistake......
I put periods after the state abbreviations! 'Chicago, IL. 55555' instead of 'Chicago, IL 55555'
I am kind of hoping that it is a fairly common mistake? Maybe they won't notice...even tho that mistake is repeated at least 6 times between the resume and coverletter? LOL :chuckle
I was just thinking....I put 'give attention to detail' as a positive attribute...that's showing em...eh?
It could have been worse.
Oh, well. This is the first time I have job hunted since 99'...I am a little rusty.
So, worst case scenario, I have now had a refresher on resume writing and I will continue on and pay special attention to the tiny details...like placement of periods! Love Jenn
