Today, while updating my résumé, I noticed that in my list of achievements it said "Torturing middle school students". I meant "tutoring", but I guess this explains why I'm still unemployed a year after I started looking for a job. FML

Well, those two words are practically synonyms, so I don't think it would have made much of a difference.

You should ALWAYS proofread your resumé, at least twice.

Well I guess you've been Tortured for a year due to that simple mistake.

I can't stop laughing at this comment no wonder why the two are spelled so similar..

How could they be synonyms when they mean the exact same thing?

You should also have another person or five look at it for errors. A single typo can make it so the HR person throws it in the garbage immediately. It's too important.

or 3x. just to be safe.

Did the employers really not realise it was a typo?

Would you as an employer take that chance? Plus it looks very unprofessional to have spelling mistakes on a résumé.

The fact that the person didn't take the time to double check their resume for errors before applying for jobs is reason enough to not hire said person. Resumes should be professional and not have any typos, or grammatical errors.

Well it would probably have been worse if someone hired you with that resumé, they would have been left wondering why you haven't tortured any middle schoolers yet

Being a tutor in this era, the only reason I can think of you being unemployed is that you weren't torturing them hard enough

And this is why checking for errors is very important.

Re-reading is your friend OP, at least you caught it sooner rather than later.

I think a year may qualify as later

If you had "Torturing high school students" instead, I bet you would be been hired.
