Proofread carefully - because typos make you look unprofessional
Today I got a good laugh when I read a post by Jane Genova on her Speechwriter-Ghostwriter blog titled Appearance Is Everything - That Includes Cover Letters because she didn’t follow here own advice. The last heading said (my capitals and italics):
“Proofread. A typo makes a bad impression. Usually when we keep editing the LATTER, there will be typos. That means we have to give it one last read.”
The same mistake also appears on a version at her Over-50 blog titled Cover Letters - Appearance Is Everything.
