10 Resume Errors that Spell Check Won’t Catch

I read an article recently about spell check and how it does not always catch every error.  So, I thought I’d pass it on:

  • Its versus It’s (or any other apostrophes)
  • Your versus You’re
  • Sales verus Sails
  • Affect versus Effect
  • Would Have not Would of
  • Through versus Threw
  • Then versus Than
  • Supposed To not Suppose To
  • Wonder versus Wander
  • Their versus There versus They’re
  • Farther versus Further

Do not rely solely on spell check when reviewing any documents; use an outside eye to proofread.  Are there any that you have “missed” or have heard of? Would love to hear!

    How about “versus” itself.
    I guess after you type it so many times, you don’t catch your own errors.
    (3rd one… sales versus sails)
