Should I correct a resume sent with an error on it?
When I listed my previous positions, which are three listed, it has a business I currently own 1995-present, my last position 2005-present, which should have said 2005-2008, and the position before that. I sent this resume via email and feel I need to send an email stating there was a mistake, but don't know how to do so without looking like someone who didn't proofread - I did and can't believe I missed this! Should I just wait to see if it is caught?
Marcie, I would definitely send an email owning up to the error. Although it would have been better if you'd caught the error in the first place, I think it looks better to admit your accountability rather than trying to cover it up. If I were doing the hiring, I would appreciate your honesty. And, after all, we are all human and we DO make mistakes. It's how we respond to those mistakes that is our true measure as a person. Good luck!
