A reader has written in to RoF to say that he was applying for a paralegal job at Clyde & Co when he noticed an outstanding typo in the job description.
He decided to do the right thing and sent an email to the firm’s HR department pointing out the mistake. “Within the hour they had corrected it without even so much as a courtesy email back.” And hell hath no fury as a paralegal scorned – “now I’ve been rejected for the job, feel free to publish this”.
At the risk of making a rod for our own backs, here it is:
A spokesman for the firm said "whichever way you look at it (and spell it), attention to detail is important to us. We're sorry for this error and thank the candidate for pointing it out."
