Try those from lawyers. A long time back, when I was temping in Seattle, I
was asked to read some resumes of applicants for an attorney position in a
software company in Redmond, WA (some company run by a guy named Gates . . .
can't remember its name ;~}). Anyway, I was appalled by the typos,
grammatical errors, and just bad writing I encountered. My feeling is, if
you can't write a decent resume, hire someone who can to do it for you. Of
course, with writers that seems a bit dishonest. OHOH, with lawyers . . .

I agree with Kathleen that such problems she mentions are a sign of a total
lack of professionalism - or maybe it's just the "duh" factor kicking in.
