We strongly encourage using the most modern spell-checker.
As of 2021-09-25, we believe the best is Grammarly.
For now, we mainly work with engineers whose first language is Russian. Here are common mistakes we see among them, including real-world examples. We believe this list should be applicable for people with other mother tongues as well.
Singular vs plural
"3 LeetCode problem" -> "3 LeetCode problems"
"recomendations" -> "recommendations"
"Solve problem Reverse Nodes in k-Group" -> "Solve the Reverse Nodes in the k-Group problem"
"Conduct interviewing.io coding interview" -> "Conduct an interviewing.io coding interview" or "Conduct one interviewing.io coding interview"
"Read through 3 chapters via the CCI book" -> "Read through 3 chapters of the CCI book"
"Record a video and share on Telegram" -> "Record a video and share it on Telegram"
"I founded one mistake" -> "I found one mistake"
Correct word order
"Read the Grokking the System Design 1 lecture" -> "Read 1 lecture of the Grokking the System Design" or "Read the Grokking the System Design (1 lecture)"
Some people write a list of phrases in the resume without using dashes or bullet points.
Long phrases in bullet points don’t need a dot at the end, but if it’s a sentence without a bullet point use a dot.
Start all bullet points with an uppercase letter.
"software engineer" is mentioned as a job title -> "Software Engineer" is mentioned as a job title
