Typo in your profile like spinach in your teeth

 

 

Spinach in your teeth? Zipper unzipped?

You would probably want to know, right? Ideally, you’d be told discreetly, as suggested in this post from manners mentor, inc.

What about typos in your LinkedIn profile? They are potentially embarrassing and just as easy to fix.

Make sure your profile is typo-free, particularly if good spelling and grammar are expected and valued in your field. Check everything carefully yourself, then ask a friend to review it. It can be difficult to spot your own mistakes.

Finally, if one of your connections identifies herself as an excellent proofreder and another was once a Business Devlopment Manager, let them know with a polite, private message.

They”ll thank you.
