And we’re the ones with all the proofreaders!
We sent an unedited version of our newsletter yesterday, and then recovered with a second one, headlined “Oops …”(http://conta.cc/gSax9y)
Lots of people will agree: recovery is everything. There’s no way to avoid falls, slip-ups, mistakes in life, or in your career. One of the most important questions I ask in an interview is “Tell me about your biggest screw-up.” If they take too long to answer, I assume they haven’t experienced it yet. Or, if further along in their career, I make a note about their humility.
I’ll tell you that we’ve already gotten calls about some of the talent we featured — hiring is still ramping up! — and no one mentioned the errors in our newsletter. And, hopefully, that’s a mistake we won’t make again.
