58 percent of resumes contain typographical errors or misspelled words.

We understand the desire to cull the resume list, and we understand the feeling one gets when reading a resume with spelling errors or typos.

But some times, this could be removing excellent candidates (who are otherwise very strong) but who may be non-native English speakers or possibly suffer from medical conditions that do not impact their day-to-day work. Writing off so many potentially good candidates while simultaneously complaining of a worker shortage might not be the best.
