Resume Typos

Read the transcript from Dylan Green with Claudia M. Meer, CIO and CFO of AlphaStruxure on resumé typos. Read the full transcript here.

Catherine: You see a resumé looks really good, you see, LinkedIn profile looks really good, but the dreaded typo appears – not once, not twice, but three times. What do you do?

Claudia: It’s a really tough call. I think it’s a sign of a lack of attention to detail. So I would say the person has to really show in other ways that they really have that attention to detail. They have to kind of make up for the, for the typos and find ways to prove out that they have that capability. I think that’s something that comes to the reference process, frankly, is really checking out whether that person has what it takes to be a individual contributor. And to run forward with less oversight.

Catherine: So you heard it here first. If you have typos, you have to make up for it in other ways.
