A powerful vocabulary is the single most important factor for academic achievement and success in life. According to a survey of CEO’s, the most important skill a job applicant can possess, and the skill most often found lacking, is the ability to communicate effectively and write correctly.

Another survey, focusing on the Human Resources (HR) Departments of major Fortune 500 companies (see our White Paper) found that over the last few years a distinct shift has taken place:
Spelling skills and proper use of grammar are receiving more and more attention in the job interview process.

In contrast to prior decades, many HR professionals now rate spelling skills higher than grade average or prior work experience in their decision making process!

Words are symbols for ideas. It takes confident command of the English language to communicate effectively.
Wrong word usage or spelling mistakes will discredit your ideas.

If your vocabulary is weak, you will understand less of the world around you and people will understand you less. Even if you are a genius, other geniuses with better verbal skills will be hired and promoted ahead of you. With the number of favorable jobs declining every year, this is something you don't want to take lightly. 

Spell checkers are part of the problem, not the solution

Some people say that computers have made the need for information storage in the brain unnecessary.
This is just as absurd as saying that we don’t need to exercise our bodies because cars, planes, washing machines etc. remove the need.

Nothing replaces a profound education. Your spellchecker catches mistakes sometimes—but not always. Spellcheckers give you a false sense of security, where only an active, alert mind can prevent errors.
Most certainly they will not be available to you during entry examinations, job interviews, presentations, or while writing a note.
