Typo sends opportunity away

Don't put the wrong phone number on your online résumé.

A member of a local networking group recently described getting phone calls at her work for someone who listed her office phone number on his résumé on Monster. He sometimes get a phone call every day at this wrong number. These calls have been going on for 5 months. How many leads has he lost from one typo?

Proofread your résumé, especially details like email addresses and phone numbers that are unforgiving of mistakes. A one-digit typo could send opportunity knocking on someone else's door.
