How Important Is Good Grammar When Hiring?
I read an interesting article by Kyle Wiens on the Harvard Business Review’s HBR Blog Network entitled “I Won’t Hire People Who Use Poor Grammar. Here’s Why.”
We would probably all agree on the importance of submitting a spotless resume when applying for a job. But this business owner makes all applicants pass a grammar test before they will be considered for hire. Read the article and decide if you agree with him. Is his reasoning sound, or is he being a bit extreme?
