There's formal and informal letter.

If the fool can't tell the difference then he has no business applying for a job.

Some people can't make use of their brains at all.....A master's degree holder for that matter.



Even me that went to night school won't make that mistake. I was taught formal and informal letter in secondary school.

That wouldn't be possible unless he did not earn the degree (maybe paid for it).
Also, there's no way you would type letter on Microsoft word and it will not flag such abbreviations, the underlines and funny colours will make it look so annoying that a sane person cannot email it or send it to print with all those flags.
I seriously doubt your story!

Hmmm...
So people still type that way.
I thought that thing ended with 2go.

BTW, the reporter himself has a problem with grammar. A technical case of a pot calling a kettle black. Just that the pot is bigger than the kettle this time.

That is the consequences of too much chatting. One who chats a lot will be forced to abbreviate, and when you are addicted to chatting always, you will be forced to abbreviate. It has happened to me before in am exam hall during my MSc program. I already wrote "d" instead of the word "the" when my consciousness slapped my brain to order. I can bet that he forgot he was writing a formal letter and the forgetfulness can be attributed to addiction to abbreviations especially during chitchats

Even the HR personnel no sabi spell CAPTAIN!!! cheesy

On a serious note, I hate when I read how a lot of young people write in short-hand...it is saddening that they have mastered the act so much so that they cannot differentiate between formal and social media write-up.

His profile will be from Secondary school straight to University straight to Masters without mental growth and prior experience.
No reasonable company would hire such a joker.
That applicant would be a careless person that would be productive only under continuous supervision.
Re: MSc Holder Lost A Job Opportunity Because Of Abbreviations In His Application by TheOmoney(m): 1:12pm On Jun 08
Excessive Chatting on social media would do that to anybody here....stop blaming him.
Re: MSc Holder Lost A Job Opportunity Because Of Abbreviations In His Application by oglalasioux(m): 1:12pm On Jun 08
I won't even use any of those abbreviations during chat with a close friend.
