“You might be a great candidate if you’re a writer who can read a lot of resumes and are fluent in a language,” says Bloomsbury Australia managing director John Cappellaro.
But he warns not all writers can spell properly.
“The word you use should not be the last word,” he says.
“If you can’t spell properly you’re not a suitable candidate for any of these positions.”
