Former HR chief Laszlo Bock says Google gets 50,000 resumes a week. This is how it eliminates many of them.
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.
