most resumés have grammar errors - dying art
Experts found that 94% of job hunters risked missing out on vacancies through CV blunders such as poor spelling, grammar or presentation on their CVs.
From a sample of 450 CVs, researchers found that 81% were laden with spelling and grammatical errors, while nearly half were poorly laid out.
A mere six per cent were error-free, the study by career advisers Personal Career Management (PCM) concluded.
D: read the examples. Very funny!
Grammar should at least be consistent. I understand personal style has much to do with grammar, but it should still be consistent!
It should also be clear. If typical grammar becomes unclear, then either rephrase the sentence, or change the punctuation.
