Application Error on Resume

Postby LAallday » Mon Nov 26, 2012 9:12 pm

Forgot the apostrophe on "Dean's List" (Deans List)


did not italicize position held for one of my volunteer work, the other positions were italicized.

Volunteer (forgot to italicize this part)

Is it worth sending an updated resume?

No... no one will even notice unless they are K&E.

The best way to ensure they notice your screw up is by sending them a correction.

Yeah, either they won't notice - in which case pointing it out does you no favors - or they will - in which case (if they care) sending a new resume won't help you.

I work for the firm you are applying to and I will notice.
