    Unless you’re hiring for a proofreader or similarly detail-oriented role, a perfectly written resume isn’t always a good indicator of a candidate’s suitability. Despite this, typos and grammatical errors remain a common reason for resumes ending up on the rejection pile.

    a small typo or a poorly designed resume was indicative of a person who was lazy, careless and did not pay attention to detail,” recalls Libby Jones, a recruiting professional with more than 15 years of experience under her belt. “Now I am more forgiving for certain positions. If ‘spelling/grammar’ does not make the list of the top ten things the candidate should bring to the table for a position, I’m not going to let a typo stand between me and a great candidate!”
