    Why Your Resume Needs a Second Proof Reader?

    Sometimes benevolence of strangers help us even if we do not depend on their help. In this regards, I would like to share my real life experience with you. One day, I was riding my bike and wanted to take a left turn, so I turned on my left indicator. I could hear the indicator’s sound, so I thought it was working properly, however, the person coming behind my bike told me that you didn’t show indicator and it may be very unsafe for you, then I checked my indicator and realized that the indicator bulb has gone.

    Now, it was something that I didn’t notice and it was very critical when it comes to my safety while riding a bike. I expressed my gratitude to that person and solved the issue from my mechanic.

    There was a second set of eyes that noticed the issue of my bike’s indicator and make me observed it as well. I might have assumed for a few more days that my bike’s indicator was working fine and someone on someday would have crashed into me.
