Grammar counts

Yeah, I am an old stickler.

And I ain't standing for no sloppy grammar in letters to me. I sometimes make typos because I can't see too well, but you have no excuse.

Don't forget, in a cover letter or resume, you are handing a company grounds to rule you out--rather than in. It's a buyer's market.

Know your homephones--words that sound the same, such as to, two, and too. Use them correctly.

"Its" as a possessive has no apostrophe, although other possessives do. It's just the way it is.

Keep tenses in your resume the same. If you put "managing this or that," then don't follow with "supervised this or that."

Proof!

Have someone else proof!

With my luck, there is probably something wrong in this.
