21 Resume Typos That Will Ruin Your Chances Of Getting Hired


I always had a sneaking suspicion that potential employers don’t even read resumes that are submitted to HR. Especially when you apply online and type in all of your previous work experience in whatever proprietary system they have set up, only for them to ask you to upload your resume at the end anyway.

It also doesn’t help that every resume we submit is rarely the same…. You need to tailor it for the position that you’re applying for. But all of those changes come with some pitfalls, like spelling errors.

You’re bound to spell a word or two incorrectly while you constantly update your CV, and if there’s one thing that we’ve learned from the internet is that people are really, really big sticklers for grammar. Just get into any argument in any comment thread ever and misspell a word. It’ll take you about 5 minutes before you hate humanity.

So, in the off chance that someone at your hopeful place of employment actually reads your resume, make sure there aren’t any typos on it. Avoid the following ones like the plague.

You may inadvertently make yourself look totally incompetent.

Sometimes, all it takes is one letter.

While others are just inappropriate.

OK, I’d just laugh at this if I was reviewing your resume.

Probably not suitable for an office environment.

Well if that’s not a typo I’d want an otter-advocate in my employ.

Every hour’s happy hour amirite?

Sadly, this typo is all too common.

Even if this wasn’t a typo, working for a psychopath is probably a bad idea.

Better keep this detail to yourself.

We don’t like the company you keep, madam.

Honestly if your employer doesn’t appreciate a good cat pun, do you even want to work for them?

It doesn’t matter how qualified you are, if you misspell something on your resume, you’re just shooting yourself in the foot. That is, if someone even bothers reading it. You could always avoid that by sending in an awesome video resume.
