  1. 1. The Worst Thank You Note in the World It’s the Lynn Hazan & Associates annual April Fool’s Day misspellings contest! Find all the misspelled words below and send us the corrections at contest@lhazan.com. Typos, incorrect homonyms, misspelled proper nouns and misplaced apostrophes count as errors, but other punctuation and grammar errors do not. We will draw a winner from among the correct responses received by 5:00 p.m. CDT on April 6, 2010. Winner will be announced April 7, 2010 and will receive a gift certificate to Mrs. Field’s Cookies. Yes, these are all actual errors that we have received in resumes and other communication from job seekers! Dear Anne: I really apprecaite you taking the time to speak with me about the marketing roll with Lynn Hazan & Assocaites. Times are touch out there, and I’m sure a professionl like yourself is overwhelmed with applicates in this economy. I found our conversation to be chalked full of interesting information about your firm and it’s broad cliental. Though the organizations I have worked with recently our in different verticals, what I have learned from there experiences would compliment your firm’s offerings. For ur reference, I have attached a report I produce annualy for a current client, which is comporable to the tasks of this position. (I have made minor altercations on the attachment to protect my clients privacy.) I understand your concern that, more likely then not, this position will include substantial travel. My schedule is very accomidating, and though I would like to remain in the metropolotan Chicago area initially, I am not apposed to travel and would consider an oversees assignment in the future. Thank you also for the opportunity to meet with the principle and owner of your firm, Liz Hazen. Its to bad that we did not have more time to speak, but I understand that her presence was disired elsewhere. Unfortuntaly, I did not manage to catch her email address. Would you please pass my thanks a long to her as well? You added me to your respiratory of candidates when I graduated from colege and began my jub hunt many years ago. I have been following your job openings ever since, and now surly see the value of keeping in touch. I will there for suggest that a few former colleagues reach out to you, though they are soley responsible for public relations and do not have the marketing background necessary for this position.
  2. 2. Please let me know if your considering me for this opportunity, or if you need any furthur information. I look forward to hearing form you soon. Sincerely, Candidate 2010 marks the 11th year of Lynn Hazan & Associates, a Chicago recruiting firm specializing in marketing and communications searches.
