This is for an E-Learning support specialist to provide support and
training within a school environment.

' You will be reponsible for the support and training of the
companie's software e-learning products directly to end users
(schools) You will be.... '

Whoops no running through the spillchuker then! Perhaps the author is
learning Dutch or one of it's offshoots for the spelling of companies
(I really feel a J should be in there) , even though it is the wrong
suffix.

One also requires a ...

' Perfect Communication skills
a Teachning Degree (essential) '

to even get your foot in the door.

And, one would want to work for the company because ...

' This is truly a solid opportunity to grow your career and skills in
a fantastic company with internation clients.

Interview will be happening next week for the right person so apply
now to get more info on the job!! '


Internation clients, now is that ' clients ' spoken with intonation
using various accents?

Obviously they only expect one person to apply.

I really must get employment soon, these job adverts are driving me
crazy!

I think I saw that advert or one very similar. Every day I read in horror
the spelling mistakes throughout NZ in both job advertisements, product
advertisements and don't even mention trademe.co.nz (NZ's version of Ebay)
where the worst variations on phonetic spelling can be found.

Quite frankly the spelling in this country is abysmal whether its down to
laziness, or lack of eduKayshun I'll never know.

Scary really !

In my hometown newspaper (Scranton Times, the only paper for a town of
80000 people and the main paper for a region of about 500 thousand),
not only do spelling mistakes abound, but I once saw a string of ASCII
characters in the middle of an article, I think it was even on the
front page. It looked like someone either converted from one format to
another and it got messed up, or someone changed the font or character
mapping for one portion of the article.

Proofreading in general seems to be a lost art :)

I think that there is nothing like PCB layout to teach one the value
of proofreading. Spending several hundred US dollars and waiting a
week only to receive an unusable PCB because of some silly mistakes
made in layout is a great learning experience :)

Sometimes its something a person has difficulty with, like say me.
I have a degree in space science and I've been doing electronics type
stuff since I was in high school, I still have trouble spelling
"electricity" and "engineer". In year 5 in primary school (I was 7 or
so) I had a reading age of 16 which was as high as the test went.
Throughout high school I had after school classes in spelling and hand
writing but I had to take my HSC ("school leavers") tests with the aid
of a computer so that the assessors (assesors) could read my answers.

Though I have found inline spell checking has improved my spelling
dramatically mainly due to having it pointed out instantly I feel and
being able to correct it. I have bracketed all the spelling mistakes I
have made in this post just for interest with the correct version next
to it, without the inline spell check I wouldn't have found them.

So do spare a thought (thought is my word of the month, I keep spelling
it thaught) for those to whom spelling doesn't come naturally.

That said I find incorrect grammar or "txt" speak incredibly irritating,
that really is not putting in the effort in my mind.

That said my father for some reason has terrible difficulty writing
messages, He is very mechanically (mechanicaly) smart and is handy with
a turn of phrase in the verbal arena, but ask him to make a post on a
forum (something like this) and it comes out as an almost indecipherable
(indeciferable) hash of missing words. If you ask him to read what he
has written he reads out all the missing words, even in a message he
wrote 6 months ago.

Don't get me wrong, there are those who do find it difficult. I myself find
certain words almost inexplicably difficult to get right after being on this
planet nearly 40 years and my nephew has dyslexia (which is a cruel name for
the illness). However, having said that what irks me is when people who have
problems spelling are in positions where they HAVE to spell things correctly
for publication or public viewing or when laziness is the cause.

Agreed. Luckily I've always been a pretty good speller, but the downside
of that is that I have to prevent myself from getting too irritated by
"bad" spelling. People in lexicographically intense jobs (e.g.
journalism, advertising, personnel depts. ("HR"), etc.) should show the
best examples, says I !

Since m$ tools poofread (!) documents while they are being edited, the trade of
proofreader has disappeared, together with that of 'computer operator'.

I've a hard time understand why they've disappear, given the fact that
results are like this:

Also "word processor" (as a job title), "typist", and "stenographer."  
And "Secretary" is a lot different than it used to be.  Although we  
still have people that take the raw documents and convert them to  
pretty company-standards-compliant, specific-event-tagged, powerpoint  
slide decks...
