I think there's also a difference between sloppy/error and an
intended use. For example, if a resume starts out with styles
formatting and suddenly changes to all-normal halfway down
the page, or with bullets and suddenly changes to paragraphs. If I see that the usage is consistent, then even if it isn't done the way I would choose to do it it won't leave a negative
impression because I have and can require the use of a document template.
BTW, I never dump resumes once I've gotten them. I never
know when a situation might come up that someone I chose
previously not to consider might be right for.

There's a differencde between sloppy and an error. It seems that
everyone will toss into the garbage ple a resume from someone who is
extemely qualified to produce brilliant deliverables based on one
error. Sorry, I'm not that perfect, I'm not going to insist ona
standard that I cannot meet.
Second thought...I wonder how many people have received a resume, saw
what they thought as an error and dumped it, when in fact, it was
they who misunderstood the usage.
