I realized I made a typo on my resume after submitting. Instead of writing:
Engineer in Training
Engineering in Training
Luckily the typo is on the second page of my resume so it may not be caught. Unfortunately, the online application process doesn't allow for updating resumes. So far I've corrected the typo on my copies.
If I receive an interview, should I:
- hand out the updated resume
- admit to the interviewer about the mistake, but explain it has been resolved
- don't hand out the updated resume
- hope the interviewer doesn't find out about the typo
My gut feeling is telling me to hand out the updated resumes and admit to the mistake. What's StackExchange's feeling about this?
Engineer in Trainingis a certification, an important step on the way to becoming a licensed Professional Engineer, and an actual requirement for many engineering jobs. A good analogy might be listing "Bachelor of Artists" on a resume.
