Job Hunting Excuses:

Misspellings in job ads. This is even worse because it's not print I'm looking at, you can edit your Craigslist post at any time. Does anyone know if this has ever been a test to see if you're tactful and have an eye for detail? I get so scared wondering if I should mention it or not.

I suppose I'd like to work for a company that tolerated the occasional typo. I'd rather work for a company that jumped at the chance to make things right.

I once told an interviewer her name badge was upside down. I waited until the end of the interview when the library was about to open. She was more embarrassed than I was, so I guess it was the right thing to do. It had nothing to do with being a Belle and Sebastian fan on her part, but I was tempted to make a joke just in case.
