New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
As a designer and someone who constantly notices and pays attention to type, I have developed a very keen proofreaders eye. I have always been one to notice typos and inconsistencies in formatting. I'm not claiming to be an expert writer or anything of the sort, but I am usually able to pick up on mistakes that go unnoticed by others. I feel that this is a valuable skill and something I should play up on when applying for marketing and communication positions. I do not want to be a professional proofreader, I would just like to stress that this an "extra" skill I have and something that a might give me a leg up on another candidate.
Does this seem like something I should really emphasize or is it not as unique of a skill as I think it is? If anyone has an opinion on this or a good idea of how to incorporate this into a résumé I'd appreciate the feedback.
