Can Grammar really sink your battleship on your job application?
The short answer is No, your resume and/or job application is not likely to be tanked over a simple grammar error. For example using Too or To? Then or Than? There are very few recruiters that would discard a resume for something as simple as a grammar error, but should you be applying as an editor or a technical writer, you can bet they just might. For the average person using then or than should not cost you the job.
Using spell check is important when you are sending out communications, and remember – MS Word usually doesn’t check CAPS so make sure to be extra careful.
