When we put out a hiring listing Lori and I have the task of evaluating 200+ resumes. One of our rules is if there are typos in the cover letter or resume, that person is removed from the review process.

In a recent email, a solicitation, this one did not make it past the first paragraph before I deemed it ready to delete. Then I went back to it to capture the above screen capture for this blog post!

The email contained several spelling, punctuation, and content errors… I have read the statement multiple times and I not certain if the meaning was “you are” (you’re) or that I was physically scaling (which just is a creepy weird thing) – either way, this is a poor prospecting email and I am guessing does not receive much traction in people following up.
