The Importance of Writing Error-Free Resumes

How many typos does it take before the person reading the resume will put it down and move onto the next resume? One? Two? More than two?

A survey from Accountemps makes it clear. Three out of four (76 percent) of executives interviewed said just one or two typos in a resume would remove applicants from consideration for a job; 40 percent said it takes only one typo to rule candidates out.

The full survey results are in the Summer 2009 issue of Resume Writers' Digest.
