New Grads: Get Your Resume Proofread for Free!

We probably don't have to tell you that having a typo on your resume isn't a good thing.

Some recruiters will immediately disqualify you for a missing word or spelling error—but even the more lenient ones won't be super impressed.

Here at The Muse, we want to make sure that what stands out on your resume is your awesome experience and skills—not a glaring error. So, we've partnered with award-winning proofreading company Proofreading Services to help you out: We're giving away free proofreading for your resume!

What You'll Win

One lucky winner will receive $125 of free proofreading services, or about 40 pages worth. That's enough to cover all of your cover letters to potential employers and your resume.

Plus, 20 other new grads will win free resume proofreading.

How to Enter

It's easy! Just answer one simple question—What's the most helpful piece of job search advice you've ever received?—and leave your response in the comments section.

To win, you must be a new or recent grad (graduation date within the last or upcoming six months).

Extended! The contest will run through June 7, 2013 at 11:59 PM ET.
