Become a master spell-checker! The number one mistake job seekers make is spelling typos on resumes and job applications. While this may seem like a small slip up, hiring managers have expressed this drives them crazy and causes them to reject applications. Make sure your resume and job application is error free by using spell check on your computer, proof read and then proof read again, read it out loud, then finally ask one or two people you trust to proof read after you feel it is perfect. Yes, error free resumes and applications are THAT important!
