There is always so much pressure behind a CV. 

It's hard to believe that just two pieces of paper are meant to work as a tool to sell yourself - that's A LOT of pressure to be perfect.

BUT majority of us aren't getting it perfect.

And it's all because were making one simple mistake: a spelling error. 

A study in Australia of 40,000 genuine CVs, showed that sloppy spelling was a major reason why so many applications were getting rejected, with 67 per cent containing one error and 50 percent more than four.

The study also found the most commonly misspelt words on resumes are as follows:

• Curriculum
• Address
• Prioritise
• Liaise
• Business
• Management
• Achievement
• Committed
• University
• Labourer

So if you're in the process of job hunting make sure you triple, triple, triple check your spelling!
