"If English isn't your strong point, ask at your local JobCentre for help in constructing a cv/completing application forms. Many people have missed out on job offers that they could of got due to basic errors." (Letter from JobCentre listing programs designed to help unemployed people back into work)

I don't get it...

Then you might want to ask for help with your grammar. :-)
    Posted by JT on 28 Feb 2010.
Just don't ask the Jobcentre :)
    Posted by Wrongfellow on 2 Mar 2010.
Cheddar - it should have said: "...that they could HAVE got...". "...help IN constructing a cv..." really should have been "...help WITH..." too. Actually, the entire second sentence is incorrect; but since I already have a reputation for being a grammar nazi I'll let it go.
    Posted by JT on 2 Mar 2010.
But if they could have got job offers due to basic errors, but missed out on them... maybe that means they need more basic errors in their writing?
