Many people do not pay too much attention when scanning resumes to pick people out for interviews, and could easily pass this by. If they do catch it, then it will absolutely ruin your chances.

What did you apply for? If IBD / PE / HF, you will be auto dinged. Typos are a BIG no no in finance.

If you can't proof read your resume, you aren't going to cut it putting together pitch books.

Yeah attention to detail is CRUCIAL! Imagine having a typo on a pitchbook ....they go bananas. So hopefully the rest of your resume is impressive enough that they overlook that. Good luck.
