Ever go to a meeting after lunch and all you can pay attention to is a stain on the other person’s shirt? It’s there staring at you no matter what they say or do. Your eyes are drawn to it.

If you want to be hired for that gig, project, contract, or that perfect job, and attention to detail is part of the skills needed to be awarded the business, you cannot have typos, bad grammar, syntax errors, or anything that is unclear to the reader.

That’s all they’ll pay detailed attention to: your lack of attention to detail.

Hear that disqualification buzzer?

Be sharp. Period.
