Mistake - how bad?

Postby neyaae » Tue Jan 04, 2011 3:24 pm

I just realized that I did not put on my resume the experience I wrote my PS about. Should I send in a revised resume? Also the experience in question would have looked really good for a scholarship I applied for at one school. I can't believe I did this.

would that just draw more attention to the error, since I don't have anything more recent to add? or, is the error already glowing? should I send through snail mail?

email them an updated resume and explain your error in the email. it shouldn't be a problem (honesty is the best policy anyway, and if you don't do anything now you'll keep thinking about it until it drives you insane, trust meeeeee)
