Hard lesson learned

Check, double check, quadruple check…. get someone else to quadruple check!!!!! I missed out on an amazing teaching opportunity because I had three typos on my application. They were silly little mistakes but it speaks volumes to potential employers! I didn’t take a lot of care in proof reading my material
because I did not feel like I was qualified…. turns out, I was exactly what they were looking for. I was told my interviewing skills are fantastic, if I could only get someone to proof read my application submissions then I would be “awesome”. Moral of the story-  proofreading may be the difference between a dream job and minimum wage. —– better luck next time.
