This is probably not the best way to enter the forum, but
I cannot help myself. Please do not be offended by what
I am about to say. This is, after all, a way to expand our
knowledge. Therefore, please just consider this advice.
Regarding the posting that stated, "I will not custom taylor
my resume," as well as the response posting, the correct
word is "tailor". Please consult your dictionary. Furthermore,
you should note that "custom" is implied in the definition of
"tailor," and it is therefore redundant to say "custom tailor".
Please don't take offense, but errors such as this should
not be made by professional communicators.
