Found error in resume after T6 interview - submit corrected resume?

Postby plusultra » Sun Jan 15, 2017 5:28 am

I had an interview with a T6 school early last week. I sent an updated resume to the said school's admission office prior to the interview because I got a new job after submitting my application. Just now, I found that the updated resume contains a grammatical error: one of the bullet points for my last job lists two duties (e.g. "Processing administrative forms, running errands"), but the updated resume changed just the first part of the bullet point to past tense ("Processed administrative forms, running errands").

I was told by the interviewer that my application will be sent to the school's committee for review in next few weeks or so. Should I send them a corrected resume to prevent further damage?

Others may disagree, but I would personally not send another resume unless there was a factual error, not a simple grammatical mistake or typo.

I agree with BobBoblaw. I saw on MS9's thread you should correct a factual error (since it's an inaccuracy) but don't resubmit if it's just a typo.

I agree with this.
