I used to think no. However, lately, I'm thinking the priority should
be on how well they manage the entire documentation process. Getting
a great deliverable out the door with happy users should be more
important than whether they mis-use the word "its/it's" once on a
resume.

It is more important if you are applying for a copy-editor's
position.
