You should always make a follow-up call about a week or two after applying, anyway. Just one call, asking if your application got to the right person and expressing excitement over the possibility of working there.

If by "honest mistake" you mean "stupid completely preventable mistake", then I totally agree with you. Rule #1 of résumés: Don't lie. Rule#2: Check your information for accuracy. Rule#3: Double check your information for accuracy. Rule#4: Don't mention that you're Team Edward.

But the mother did not know he applied to the jobs, so if someone says "Hi this is Erika from [company] and [number you do not know]" of course the mother would think they were telemarketers. My mom does not even listen to the whole message sometime.

You're not supposed to lie on resumés!? Well god damn it, I put 'I'm Batman' on every single question! What happens if they find out I'm actually really only Robin?!

aww I feel bad for you that sucks, its such an easy mistake, at least now you can change it and fingers crossed you'll get a job :)

Why would you not notify them that you have changed your number with something as important as getting a job? I won't say you deserve it, but you should definitely be more aware of things like that.

"Detail-oriented" is the most common one I see (seriously overused, people), and if I see that and a typo on the same paper, it's automatically into the waste bin. Sounds harsh, but if you put that and don't spend the 5 minutes to actually look at your work, why should I?
