But he doesn’t proofread. The short and snappy text on the homepage included the highlighted line: “I’m ready to something remarkable with you.”
Notice something missing? It’s like “All your base are belong to us,” only there’s not a funny story about mistranslation.
But let’s cut the aspiring marketer, Jeff Clark, some slack. When I went back to the site mere hours later to post about it, he’d already corrected the goof (hence the screenshot). His site is a pretty brilliant idea to showcase his work and his talent. Heck, he got Seth Godin to talk about him. Clark isn’t just looking for a job. With his resume, he should have a job already. He’s looking for the “best advertising gig out there,” and you don’t get that by doing the same boring resume everybody else does. Way to go, Jeff Clark. Hope you find that gig.
But all the gutsy ideas, all the impressive design, all the incredible traffic can come crashing down when you have a typo in the middle of it all. Remember that the next time you print a bulletin, publish a web site, order a banner, create a slide. Proof it. And then have someone else proof it.
