Yes, there are tools that check the grammar on a resume. One of the very best tools to use is the word processing software you’ll write a resume with. This is a fancy phrase to describe what most people call Microsoft Word. However, software can be expensive. If you find yourself in a situation without Microsoft Word, you can use Open Office or Google Docs. These platforms are both free to use. Another good site to check out is Grammarly.
If you are uploading your resume online, it’s very important to first put your resume into one of these tools. Not every website will grammar check your resume for you.
If you are using Microsoft Word, you can check your grammar by going to the “Review” tab and then selecting the “Spelling & Grammar” button. Microsoft Word will scan your resume for errors and will point them out to you, one at a time. Sometimes, Microsoft Word will find an error that you disagree with. When this happens, I often Google the phrase on my own to learn more. There are many grammar websites available that will quickly explain the differences between various phrases or spellings.
And last but not least, one of the very best tools for grammar checking is proofreading. Print out your resume. Read it out loud to yourself. Find a friend who’s a grammar nerd, and ask him/her to read. Look for anything that sounds unusual. One of the quickest ways to lose an opportunity is to have a spelling or grammar mistake in your resume. Take the time to error check your resume to be sure you get the very best results.
