Are you one of these two?
1. You've been out in the job market for a few years now, but you're still holding on to old habits.
2. Just looking to enter the market, but you need to just shed that college skin
If so it's time to freshen up on a little etiquette.
Here's 13 little things you may be doing to sabotage your success:
1. Grammar: misspellings, lack of capitalization, and generally poor grammar say you're uneducated, inattentive to detail, or, frankly, just don't care. Poor grammar is like a giant fluorescent warning sign that says: "Steer clear." Please use spellcheck tools, reread your note, and if it's something "important," have others proof it, too.
2. Flaky McFlakerson: We all have our "off" moments when crap comes up, but consistently failing to show up or deliver quickly takes its toll. Chances are, you're either disorganized or a megalomaniac. Either way, it's a deal breaker. And no, your constant string of excuses doesn't help. Just do what you said you would when you said you'd do it.
