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.
