Would YOU ask these folks for a professional resume critique?



OMFG. I can't believe I'm looking at this mistake. This is seriously unacceptable. This is what you don't do if you're legitimately trying to pass yourself off as an authority on resume-writing. You don't forget to proofread. You don't make retarded homonym errors. (Are they trying to show How Not to Write a Resume, or what?)

Maybe I'm being overly picky here, but I also really don't like the sentence "Make sure you're [sic] resume is interview-ready...". You would be the one in need of being ready for the actual interview. Granted, your resume would need to be ready to bring along with you to the interview, but the resume itself shouldn't be referred to as interview-ready because, really, nobody's going to be talking to or awaiting a response from your damn resume. Then again, if your resume contains stupid errors in it like the one in this little ad, your resume will speak for itself (and you won't find yourself anywhere near an interview)...

Thanks to MIKE S. for finding this error!
