@sara_tiara:  I work in HR and think it could go either way… sometimes I see things like that and think OMG, if they were serious about the job the least they could do is proof read – maybe they don’t pay attention to detail… (usually this is more if they put the wrong title or something major  – you would be surprised how many people use the same cover letter for mulitple jobs and forget to change details ie. “I’m applying for the writer position advisted in the globe and mail” when our position might be for a marketer and was advertised in the times). 

That being said if the only error is the one thing I don’t think it’s an issue and I might not even notice (truth be told we skim through a lot to find the important stuff and a , vs a . easily could be missed). So I think you might draw more attention to send in another one.

@sara_tiara:  I would not reapply. it’s not like you wrote the wrong cover letter for the wrong job, and sending in something would just draw attention to it.

I would let it go. It’s a small mistake.
