Spelling and grammar mistakes can send resumes to the trash bin. Share the following tips from Career Action Resources with your job hunters to help them avoid this fate: 

  • Run spell check. Spell check can miss mistakes, but it also catches them. 
  • Check words you think may be misspelled. If a word doesn't seem right, look it up.
  • Use the right word, part one. Any word that has another spelling should get your attention. That includes its and it's; their, they're, and there; too, to, and two; than and then. Be sure you have chosen the correct word. 
  • Use the right word, part two: Some words often are confused. So, for example, if you write loose, make sure you didn't mean lose. If you intend to say formerly, confirm you didn't write formally.
  • Read your resume backward. This step will help you spot misspellings and missing words because you have to concentrate on one word at a time.
  • Read your resume out loud. This action will make missing words or repeated words stand out. 
  • Let it rest before sending. After you write something, don't send it immediately if possible. Time away from your writing often reveals errors.
  • Copy and paste. When you complete online applications, be careful about your spelling and grammar. If possible, copy and paste information from your double-checked resume, rather than risking a typo.

Looking for resources and guidance to help your state meet Reemployment Services and Eligibility Assessments (RESEA) evaluation requirements?

Check out the following information described on WorkforceGPS, a website for workforce professionals that is sponsored by the Employment and Training Administration of the U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL).

These resources, linked on WorkforceGPS, offer evidence-based guidance and tools for studying and implementing RESEA evaluation requirements:

  • RESEA Evaluation Resource List provides studies and tools that might help RESEA administrators and staff understand and produce evidence about their RESEA interventions.
  • RESEA topic area tab on CLEAR highlights studies in the reemployment evidence base relevant to the RESEA program. 
  • TEGL 06-19 and UIPL 01-20 explain Expectations for States Implementing the RESEA Program Requirements for Conducting Evaluations and Building Program Evidence.
