By: Andrew Kucheriavy

Most employers and recruiters agree that the top reason that makes them reject a resume is spelling mistakes. Some mistakes are so funny that we couldn’t let recruiters have all the fun and put together this list for your enjoyment.

If you don’t want to end up on this list, there is a simple rule to follow: proofread, proofread again, and then have someone else proofread your resume and your cover letter.

Here is Our Top 20 of the Most Hilarious Spelling Mistakes on Resumes and Cover Letters:

20. “I have a known track record and excellent experience with accurancy and fixing erors”

19. “Strong Work Ethic, Attention to Detail, Team Player, Attention to Detail”

18. “My experience include filing, billing, printing and coping”

17. “Demonstrated ability in multi-tasting.”

16. “My work ethics are impeachable.”
