I'd like to briefly touch on the topic of proofreading.…And how important it is to not rely solely on spell check.…As I scroll through my document, I was looking…for words that spell check picked up for errors.…I came across Lightroom.…However, this is the name of the Adobe product, Lightroom.…So, it's actually spelled correctly.…You need to be especially careful when it comes to product names and brands.…Have a look in our technical skills section, and…see the word Canon.…Spell check is not picking Canon up as an error.…
Because it is spelled correctly, based on the English language.…However, the brand Canon, has only one N in it.…You need to have a close look at your…document and have a third party review it for accuracy.…Errors like this could jeopardize your chances of landing that dream job.…
Note: Steve uses Adobe InDesign to create these resumes, but we've included a bonus chapter that shows you how to recreate the same designs in Microsoft Word or the software of your choice.
