Just realized I mistakenly misspelled the person’s name I sent an email to as part of an interview process. I so hate doing that to someone, do I follow up with a short - “Sorry X I realized I misspelled your name in the prior email, have a nice weekend” or do I just let it be? One letter off, this is what I get for responding on my phone, dang autocorrect.

I'd leave it. When I was recruiting out of UG I spelled a guy's name wrong (Bryan vs Brian). I sent a follow up email to apologize but he said he didn't even notice

I think your reply is great. Some people don’t care and some people care a whole lot. No harm in a quick apology

If it were me I would reply and fix it. Somewhat related, I once applied for a job and autofilled the personal info and address. Mistakenly chose my daughter's name (I am a man). Recruiter reached out "Hi GIRLS NAME. We'd like to invite you in to interview.....". That was an awkward conversation but it went over well.

Done! Sent the email, agreed I was torn at first but agreed no harm in a quick apology. Thanks for the input everyone 😊

Send it - it shows you can admit mistakes. If they hadn't noticed, it's not a big deal to get a correction. If they had, they'll appreciate the correction

like

Fix it unless you want it to haunt you forever.

Yeah don’t worry about this

Fix it - the person may really appreciate it or they may not, but they wouldn’t be upset about you fixing it, whereas they might be if you don’t
