I just found two typos in my CV which was sent to a few perspective employers!

How the hell did I miss that???

Good grief, could that be the reason why I have a bunch of rejection letters?

That's really annoying!

The exact same thing happened to me! I had 3 people read it, I myself read it numerous times and I still missed them. SO ANNOYING!

It's so easy to miss your own mistakes. The first edition of the grammar workbook I co-wrote came out in August, and even with our internal editing and a copy-editor at the publisher's (who I thought did a bang-up thorough job!), we still had some mistakes slide through.

Oh, I hate that. I found a really poorly written sentence in a cover letter I'd already sent out. Grrr.

It really grinds my gears because I constantly proofread. I even have Husband proofread!
