In a recent survey of HR professionals conducted by us (Beyond), we learned that HR Pros said that it is harder to find qualified candidates today than it was six months ago.

Is it harder to find candidates because we’re slowly accepting that it’s now a candidates’ market? Or is it that we’re too darn picky? Are we disqualifying great candidates too early in the hiring process for forgivable mistakes? I know...I have a lot of questions.
According to our survey, the number one reason a recruiter disqualifies a candidate for a job is for a spelling error on their resume and the second most popular reason is a grammatical one.
When employers had their pick of the litter of candidates any little reason to disqualify someone was needed to narrow the pool, but with hiring becoming more challenging, is a grammatical error on the resume of a software engineer really such a crime?
According to HR Pros it is—along with these four other offenses. Let us know if you agree.
