I really ought to have more patience with this, but I don't. I get very frustrated when people send me their resumes, not asking for corrections to it, but, asking for it to be forwarded to contacts for a job, and, they have really shoddy resumes- multiple fonts, sizes, typos, formatting, all of those and more! I don't know- these are people a lot younger than me, and presumably with a lot less exposure. But they have bachelors and masters degrees- that ought to count for something! And, they have net access. It is not so hard to google "how to prepare a resume" and follow the numerous most basic tips all over the internet. When I get back to these people with corrections to their resume, they reply that they are really desperate to find a job and therefore in a hurry to put their cv out there, without bothering to run it through a spell-check. What gives? That is such an innately futile move, I cannot even bring myself to comment on it.
Sigh. This is fast becoming a pet peeve.
