    Hello,

    I've recently applied to one of the top consultancy firm. Few days after submitting my application, I noticed I made a few minor errors (leaving out ',', wrong dates and so on).

    I am currently deciding whether to send a revised version of my cv/cover letter to the HR manager there, asking them to replace it. What do ppl in TSR think, good idea or not, please ay why too.

    Many thanks.

    Tough, it's a one shot process, unless something substantial changes, like you get your degree results. Companies that are going to bin your CV because of typos, are just going to bin it even quicker when you tell them you've made typos (which you are effectively doing). On the incorrect dates, wait and see how it plays out, and if invited to the next stage, then you should tell HR that dates are wrong.

    No, don't dumb it down. Consulting firms sell specific skills, and at junior levels in particular, they sell technical skills because they can't sell experience. So definitely don't dumb down.
