Seriously. It’s like all the stuff you need to make cookies is staring you in the face. All of a sudden, the eggs break open and slap you in the eye socket. The milk pours down your front and the flour projects itself on to your favorite shirt. And just when you think you have them under control, the chocolate chips melt and streak down your pants in an embarrassing manner.
Ok, back to business. I’m trying to get a letter out to a company to get an interview and a job. I know I can do all the stuff they ask me to do but I can’t tell them in the right way. Part of me wants to scream, “oh forget this crap, look at the silly resume.” Obviously, they want this letter for a reason.
So, the major thing to remember is that they want to make sure you can do the job. But your resume is about you, not the cover letter. The cover letter is about THEM. Make your achievements and experiences tie back to the stuff they outline in the job posting. I suck at it so I won’t give examples but someone should be able to figure this out.
