There's something you need to work on. Most companies may not accept a handwritten resume. Typing has become a very common practice to where it is better to type instead of hand writing because it is cleaner and easier to read. If you get sponsored, the company may need you to write an article of some sort which will more than likelyneed to be typed.

Companies may turn you away due to having horrible typing skills, so work on that before anything else.

Have you ever considered just going back and reading what you wrote?

If you realize you have a problem then correct it. Get a dictionary, use spell check and learn where to capatialize. For example, sponseer, what is that?

Concentrate on your studies in school. Math, science, and English are very important in everyday life. Studying proper English is going to be the top priority when writing a resume. Most colleges offer technical writing courses that would help with your writing skill. I am a horrible speller, but I am constantly checking my spelling and looking for synonyms to make sure I used the right words. I write estimates for home repairs for a large construction company and if I were to miss spell a word, it would be very embarrassing.     :-[ The same would go for someone trying to "sell" to a sponsor. Don't let the majority of the people on this forum discourage you. If you could obtain a few sponsors to help with the cost of tournament fishing, more power to you. But if you say and school and land a good paying job, the need for sponsors is less of a priority and spending time on the water becomes the top priority. Good luck to you!

Tight lines buddy!

Check spelling feature on this site works plus a dictionary. Don't be too lazy to use either.

Ahhhh The texting generation, you guys wouldn't believe the amount of resumes that are floating around out there with no punctuation, abbreviated, and misspelled words. My favorite was one I received that started out "hey man" and did not have one comma period or capitalized letter in the whole entire email. Of course the kid was 14, and made the statement that fishing was getting to expensive so he needed sponsors. :D

Yes, you should HAVE.

Spell check does not pick the correct word for you if the wrong word is spelled correctly.

I'm not picking on you specifically but if you post on a thread that has grammar and spelling as central topics, then you should be prepared to proofread your posts.

Yes, you're right. I Have a hard time slowing down my thoughts to be able to pick up my own mistakes. Spelling is usually the easy part. Punctuation is what usually hurts me the most.

After you wade through the grammar police, here are a few sections I would include.

1) Personal Bio: Let the companies get an idea of who you are and what your personality is like.

2) Tournament finishes: Not the most important part of promoting a company, but it definitely helps.

3) Positions of leadership: Let the companies see that you are comfortable taking initiative and being involved in a team effort.

4) Things you are willing to do for companies: Self-explanatory, but probably the most important aspect of your resume.

A couple more tips:

1) Don't run around with your hand out looking for free stuff from anyone and everyone. I can almost guarantee that you won't land a deal where you get free stuff or a true "sponsor" position.

2) Develop relationships with companies you really believe in. It's much easier to promote products that you actually like using.

3) Don't let NO get you down. You'll hear it a lot. Accept it with some dignity and move on.

Hmmmm I could say lots, but will keep my mouth shut on this one, since there is internet grammar police around. Must not have been hugged enough as a kid.... or slapped, depends on how you look at it.

The "Resume" section of BR is the place to have your grammar corrected.  That's just how it is.  Everyone around here knows if you put something in this section, be prepared for scrutiny.

For you reference, I have highlighted an "is" that should be "are."

Have a happy weekend.   ;)

With all due respect here Speed,

I've been led to believe that this forum is used as a place to correct "resumes."  If people want a general English lesson, they'll take a class.  It really detracts from the general idea of the thread when everyone gets on here thumping their chest about how awesome they are at posting.

I agree, to a point.

When his original post was about a resume he received that was not up to par and then his follow up post chides people for correcting grammar, I feel inclined to call  .

I realize I am comparing a resume he received and a post made on an internet forum but if he is going to use that as his example and cite "misspelled words" as one of the issues....Do you get where I'm coming from?

Honestly, it's a non-issue.  I realize this.  I just don't think he should call out the "grammar police" when he was doing the same thing.

You realize this is what you're getting behind, nhclone.

Whatever you do in plain view of your sponsors or potential sponsors can and will be scrutinized. Every post is an impression, so don't waste them on bad ones.
