I am currently in the process of collecting and reviewing resumes for a position that has opened up within my company. This position doesn’t require the employee to do much written correspondence but he/she will have to communicate in writing to his/her fellow employees as well as document conversations and complaints in medical charts.
I really find not proof reading a resume before submitting it to be foolish. However, that being said, I don’t want to totally eliminate a potentially good candidate for a few typos.
My question to you folks is this; would you respond to the applicants and mention that they might want to proof read their resumes? If so, how would you word that correspondence? Or, do you simply think it isn’t my place to take on the role of school teacher.
