DOn't Trust SpellCheck
Your resume is the first thing that employers may see, even before checking your social media. Often you may get so wrapped up in making sure you include all the important details of your experience and skills that you easily overlook simple things—like grammatical and spelling errors. You’d be surprised by the number of people who submit resumes with their addresses or names misspelled.
But no matter how illustrious your internship was or impressive your student leadership commitments are, all that falls directly to the wayside if you misspell even just one word. Even one tiny error says to an employer that you are not detail-oriented, lazy or just a poor writer.
And all this can happen despite spellcheck. Make sure you take the time to read,reread, reread and reread your resume. Then get someone else to read and reread it again.
There are so many additional resume tips to keep in mind, and numerous resources available to you. A great resource at Towson University is the Career Center. You can get your resume reviewed and critiqued, and also view sample resumes for your major.
