    Funny Resume Mistakes that keep Hiring Managers Amused! But Cost You the Interview By Barbara Safani

    Think resume typos are no big deal? Last year, a temporary staffing firm interviewed 150 senior executives from some of the nation's largest companies. Forty percent of the respondents said that just one typo on a resume would cause the candidate to be eliminated. Thirty-six percent said it would take just two mistakes before the resume was put in the "no" pile. Here are some of my favorite resume bloopers. Obviously spell-check isn't all it's cracked up to be.
