Looking at the amount of response I got from SMS’ing my friends about a Job Opening… I thought it would be nice if I can keep sending SMS to friends so that they can help me in closing those requirement… Yesterday I again SMS’ed all my friends about an Opening in Business Development… The requirement was for Female Candidates & a typo has cause real embarrassment because I SMS’ed the requirement to my clients, business associates other than my friends, relatives & associates (at-least I can explain them)…
Here is the message I sent & the typo is marked in red;
Cogzidel Job Opening

Experience : Fresher

1.) Good Communication Skills & fluency in English.
2.) Good attitude to learn & ability to work indecently & with teams.

Pls pass me if you have any reference or help me by passing it to your friends. Resumes can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
Actually what I meant was Independently & not indecently… So, my lessons from this experience is;
- Never send messages without proof reading…
- Never send a message when am in half sleep…
- Never trust spell checker blindly…
