I applied for a job that asked the question on the application, “How many words per minute do you type?” I thought I could type about 30 words per minute, which is the minimum required for being qualified for that job.
So, after I sent in my application, I started having doubts about my actual typing ability. I mean, I had jobs in the past where I was required to type a certain number of words per minute, but not in recent years. And for all the writing I do now, for blog posts, emails, freelance articles, etc., I just type and don’t worry about errors because of good old spellcheck. Get it typed, run spellcheck, all is good. Right? Unless you have typed “ass” instead of “add”. Spellcheck won’t find the error and you’ll look like an add. hahahah.
Just to ease my mind that I had not fibbed on my application, I googled for an online typing test, And guess what? I did 50 words per minute! Yay!
So, tell me how well you did.
