You've heard it before – all it can take to lose consideration for a job is one small mistake. Usually people think those mistakes come in the form of grammatical errors in resumes or answering a question poorly during an interview. We often forget about the more subtle nuances of the job application process, such as phone etiquette and email correspondence.
We all know that first impressions count – a lot. That's why each and every small step of the application process from start to finish is so important. While email issues may not be enough to derail your application, they certainly can, and in combination with other missteps, your chances significantly decrease.
