In most companies it's usually the receptionist who knows EVERYTHING thats going on! So they're definately the ones to get in with!
Don't be fooled by the previous answer, receptionists may know everything but they have no power when appointing staff.
I can assure you that poor spelling and punctuation on an application for any job which involves using written English, especially communicating with customers or others outside the company, creates a poor impression and will drop you to the bottom of the pile.
Aaaand what is your question?
Attention to detail is an important part of any job. One would be foolish to show mistakes on a document that helps you get one.
Were there typed mistakes in the personal page, or was the information not exactly true. If there are typos, I would suggest that before you submit your next cover letter, that you run the spell checker in Word. Also, have someone else proofread what you wrote. If the information is incorrect, correct it, as lying on a resume is never a good thing!
You seem to have covered yourself there with the receptionist very astute of you - good luck and if you get an interview you could mention that you are pleased the receptionist explained about your error. Shows you have reconigtion of all levels and that you had corrected your mistake.
