Copy, I was told, is supplied by the client but the site owner wants to make sure that the ads are legitimate job sources. I’m sure they are but if I was a company looking to hire, I’d surely want my company represented in the best possible light. Why bother, who cares anyway? Some days I am not sure. We’ve all seen those examples of text with virtually every word misspelled and our brains manage to decipher the meaning anyway. I guess it’s a matter of perception. Correct spelling and good grammar can send an image of professionalism and continuity at the least. Any advertisement, whether it be for available positions or looking for new customers or promoting a sales event, puts your company name out there in the spotlight. Wouldn’t you rather have people be impressed, rather than pointing out all your spelling and grammatical errors, snickering behind their hands and worst of all, moving along to spend their money somewhere else? In an economy that is fierce with competition, any edge is helpful. Spelling is so easy to check, that not doing so seems a tad lazy and negligent to me.

If you weren’t an English major, that’s okay! The Editor Afloat is available at very reasonable prices to proofread/edit your writing, anything from a one-page resume to a full-length novel. Just drop me a note and I promise not to pick on you if anything is misspelled! 🙂
