Why it’s not okay to use overly casual and slang language in job applications, by Matthew Copp

Using casual, slang or relaxed/highly informal language in job applications may come across that your approach to your interactions with other professionals and even the way you view your potential boss as unprofessional and careless.

It is imperative that you double check (if you have to triple check) your spelling, grammar and punctuation. As long as what you have written to a prospective employer is clear, easy to read, concise and professional, it will help to make a good impression.

If you have to, read out loud to yourself what you have written. That can always help.
