Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Resume Tip: Do Not Misspell Your Name:


Brandon Moser

We once received misspelled information on a resume. The recruiting company (to not be named) modified the interviewee's resume and in the process misspelled the name and website of a Web Designer. When they arrived for their interview, I informed them of the issue and they were very appreciative and were not happy with the recruiter.


Question: when you're in the process of changing your name (i.e. me) what name do you put on your resume? Legal name? Name that I would like to be hired under?

Another reason why changing your name stinks.
