Hi guys,

I recently sent my CV to a potential employer for a legal assistant role in the city. Upon reviewing my CV, after sending it, I found multiple spelling and grammatical errors.

The interview is sometime next week and I'm really not sure how I can try to save myself on this occasion.

Can anyone offer any advice as to what I could do without bringing attention to the errors?

I honestly can't think of other why to change your mistake but to pray and do your very best during the interview. You could also print the corrected CV, with mybe some documentations, ECT. The main thing is to distruct the HR with your performance in the interview.

To be honest, if you've reached interview they probably haven't noticed. They have probably skimmed your CV and thought it looks like. I certainly wouldn't bring it to their attention. If they mention it, then just hold your hands up and accept there were avoidable errors.

Just give it a good go next week and prepare as your normally would. Good that you've noticed though to prepare in case they bring it up. I know someone who once sent an application addressed to the wrong law firm who got the job, so all isn't lost!

I would bring it to their attention before they bring it to yours.
You can always say that you emailed the draft earlier version
