Dear Sir/Madam

It’s no won­der we’re see­ing an increase in unem­ploy­ment, peo­ple seem to have no idea how to apply for a job these days.

Recent per­son­al expe­ri­ence has shown me that there are a lot of qual­i­fied, tal­ent­ed peo­ple in the Boston area– and believe it or not, I think that most know how to address their cov­er let­ters.

Though I agree with what Ms. Meg says, I do know how to write prop­er cov­er let­ters, and I also know how to mar­ket my work to stand out (my pro­fes­sion­al work is entire­ly seper­ate from Suck­ahs, and this site).

Still, I’ve been walk­ing into these inter­views for posi­tions that I con­sid­er beneath me, and they are telling me that I am only one of over 100+ resumes… I mean, 2–3 years ago, I would walk into an inter­view and get the job that day.

So all fun­ny stuff aside, the econ­o­my is not improv­ing.

  • I just got back from a final round inter­view at MIT, and I think I stand a good shot!

    Let’s hope so.

    At 1:30, I’ve got a final inter­view at Bunker Hill Com­mu­ni­ty Col­lege.…

    Maybe I’ll have good news soon!
