Over 90% of resumes intended to impress managements end up tickling the funny bone and sounding outrageous--thanks to grammatical, spelling and typographical bloopers galore.

A study on CV Blunders carried out by Teamlease, an agency providing staffing solutions, revealed that

more than 90% of 500 randomly selected resumes across different levels and job profiles carried some or other form

of error.

The study revealed that resumes are being written in great haste and no attention is paid to details.
