Typos Hazardous for Your Career Health

Typos in your executive resume could be fatal to your candidacy for a position, according to a recent survey cited in the newsletter of the National Association of Workforce Development Professionals. Here are the sobering statistics:

Nearly half (47%) of executives polled by online job search firm OfficeTeam say that just one typo in a resume is cause to not consider a candidate for a position with their company.

Another 37% said that two typos would automatically send the resume to the trash can.

Only 6% would consider job candidates with 4 or more typos in their resumes.

Enough said.
