  1. This is asking what YOU think! Having hired people, my opinion is yes indeed. Many applications went straight into "file thirteen" or "the wastebasket." It's one way to weed people out of the interview process.

  2. Absolutely. I work at a learning center, and when I look at an applicant's application, errors are the first thing that I notice. A hard worker at any job would at least proofread their resume, in my opinion. Anyone who wouldn't take the time to proofread something so important would be likely to just "get by" while working, as well.

  3. Tis the same with college applications; however, I am afraid many online "colleges" look only at available financial resources rather than the short essay.

  5. not really school related.

    Okay, I got accepeted for a part time job at school, and the letter says that I should bring a resume. I never had a job before, so how would I bring a resume, but it seems really bad for me not to bring something.
