I got a call this afternoon from the HR guy at a place I had applied for a job at. The first thing he did was tell me I spelt my name wrong on my cover letter/resume. Apparently I had a twitch and somehow managed to get 3 “l”s in Gillian. Good start. It was a great way to throw me off and make me completely uncomfortable and a bit of a stuttering mess on the phone for a quasi-interview.
On further investigation, it seems that every single resume/cover letter/CV (including my application for Grad School) I have sent out in the last three months has had this error. Why didn’t someone (ie big stupid me) catch this sooner?!?
