It is best to have three tools available for proofing an unemployment letter: Dictionary, Word, and a friend.

  • Dictionary and other similar resources
A dictionary should be handy for any words you may believe are misspelled. You will definitely have to look for spelling errors in any piece you are editing, including an unemployment letter. Other resources can include a grammar book that will explain how to use commas and other punctuation. Often, writers have trouble with commas - such as where they need to be placed or whether a comma is the right punctuation. These books can be handy for what the next tool will not catch.

  • Word processor
Microsoft Word is almost a universal word processor, though you can certainly use others. With any word processor there is the ability to check for spelling and grammar errors, but it will not catch everything during the proofing stage. You also have to consider dictionaries and other resources along with a secondary reader.

  • A friend
If at all possible find a friend, family member, or other person willing to proof the unemployment letter. Another set of eyes helps you find the awkward to read sentences. You may find the sentences are okay, but another person may have trouble understanding what you wrote. This is because your brain knows what it meant and may misread an error. The other person may also suggest different words or phrases that can make the letter sound more professional or more fluid.

After all three of these suggestions, the letter should be about the best you can make it. Proofing is after all just another word for editing a piece of writing. As long as you take the time to look over every sentence and even read it aloud you should have no problems.
