My biggest pet peeve is incorrect grammar. Especially when the person is not only a college graduate, but someone applying for a HIGH LEVEL job. I also get really irritated when coworkers send an email to clients that are somewhat unprofessional with no punctuation, poor spelling, and horrendous misuse of “you’re.” I understand the internet can be a casual place, but that does not mean you should forget all of your elementary school education.
I am always on the look-out for clever infographics and charts to help show people how to use grammar correctly, because really, it isn’t that hard. I may or may not be known as the Grammar Nazi among my social network.
There’s not much else to say but, LEARN THIS.
