Spell Check Your Resume

I got an email from a guy at my company who is looking for a project. I guess he needs to get placed or he is out of work. So I took a peek at his resume. One of the first things I saw was that he listed his maticulous [sic] trait. Oh boy. We might be in trouble.

It was a bit funny but sad too. How meticulous can you be if you cannot spell meticulous? At least run your resume through a spell checker and correct the problems before blasting your resume out to strangers. Otherwise you will face peril.

I took a closer look at the resume. Seems like the guy is going to college to get his degree. Not sure how my company hired him. I tried to get a rock star college student hired. Was told that we only hire college grads from good colleges here. Go figure.
