We’ve been wondering what the social norms are around proofreading job applications. (Specifically in EA, if that makes a difference.)
Most EA orgs have Google Forms where you tell them all sorts of things about yourself, your experience, and your knowledge of their field. They don’t explicitly say things like, “Feel free to do online research to answer these questions but please don’t ask third parties” or “Feel free to google the answers but do not ask humans or even GPT-4 for help.”
So is it okay to ask friends to proofread such answers? Is there maybe a graduation where proofreading spelling and grammar is fine but not proofreading content? Thank you!
