I was wondering if anyone can help me out with a recruiter who contacted me yesterday on LinkedIn for a potential role. The problem is in my response I had a typo and before I got the chance to review my work I accidentally hit send. I'm really upset that happened and am really worried about how I can move forward with this.
Having a typo in my response makes me look unprofessional (especially since this was for a software engineering role) and I fear the recruiter has judged against me based on that. Also, the recruiter had contacted me at 8 AM but since I have been having a stressful week, I have been sleeping late and waking up late. My response came in around 1.30 - 2.00 PM
I am very grateful for any help on this. Thank you.
====== EDIT ======
The question Should I send an email correcting my spelling mistake in a job application does not answer my question for two reasons.
The first is, my reply came in 6 hours later after the recruiter contacted me. For a simple yes response, should the wait time be that long?
Secondly, the typo was kind of a big one. Instead of writing "might" an editing snafu on the computer made that "m". Seeing that the recruiter was praising me for my experience and knowledge on first contact, should a software engineer be not more careful as they have to be so when writing code? What would the recruiter think?
