How many resume blunders is too many, and should HR consider candidates with typos and style errors in their resume?

    Having witnessed some atrocious examples of spelling and grammar lapses once asking a candidate to submit a piece of handwritten work, I am really in favour of a hand-written cover letter now.
    As a recruitment consultant, I am always critiquing and fixing applicants CV's, and as you say, most of them are oblivious to the errors because Microsoft has made it too easy for them!

    There is another side to this - as a candidate, is it verboten to provide "feedback" regarding errors in recruitment ads, particularly if you are being asked to demonstrate attention to detail. I've seen some shockers!
