With all the technological advances in recent history, there is no excuse for sending a professional email or document without being absolutely sure that the message is mistake free.
Too often, employers will receive an email or a document riddled with spelling errors, causing them to think of the candidate as sloppy or careless. If you are sending messages to anyone in a professional setting, you must be sure to proofread and double check your work. It only takes a minute and with the programs on today’s computers and smartphones, there is no excuse for not doing it.
As we continue to text and iMessage our friends and family members, it can be easy to slip into that same type of messaging in the workplace. Take an extra minute to make sure that what you are sending is professional and error-free.
In cases like resumes and cover letters, have friends or family members read over your work. Mistakes happen, but with multiple people looking over your documents, you can be sure that your work is the best it can be.
