Subject/verb agreement errors. These are often editing errors. You changed the subject and did not change the verb that modifies it. Pronoun and preposition errors. We see more dropped or incorrect use of preposition pronouns: "By the end fellowship, I will have performed 50 t AVR procedures." Fiancé/fiancée mistakes.

If you just wing it with a bold here or a font change there, your CV looks amateurish and difficult to read next to your competitor's.

Once you're done, save the document with a title that includes your last name and the type of document (CV or cover letter), the month and year.

I will send you my cover letter tonight." Sometimes, though, the dictating physician fails to notice silly autocorrects before hitting send. We get things like: "Please accept my CV for the minimally offensive surgery position," or "I am interested in hospitalist opportunities with no more than 15 sh*ts per month."
