Possible error on resume

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Aug 16, 2012 12:20 am

So I know this is prob really small but its bugging me a lot

I worked at a small firm for a few summers, and when I list the experience in my resume, I say that I wrote "Complaints" and "Bills of Particulars" on one line. On the next line, I mentioned that I assisted in motions, but I didn't capitalize "motions." Would capitalizing complains and bills of particulars strike people as awkward/careless? I fixed it now but I put in my resume for OCI bidding with the original spelling.

True previous poster's thoughts. I had much worse typos (actual mistakes) and still got interviews. You'll be fine. :-)
