No interviews? Got typos?

An employer reported that he had recently received five resumes from U of MN students with typos in their cover letters. Because the firm values written work product, and its partners believe that applicants' resumes and cover letters are indicative of the work that they will produce for the firm, the first test for a candidate is "zero errors in applications."

Five students, no interviews.
