Spell

Jan 01, 2006

Heather describes how they skip resumes at Microsoft that have spelling errors. I've also found it pays off to spell correctly when writing anything. Unless you're doing a "teh kewl" ad or banner, but even in that case, you'd better know really well what you're doing. So the basic rule of business writing is: spell correctly. Because spelling shows you can have, as also discussed by Heather and the comments, attention to detail, which is a prerequisite to... anything, really, in my view.
