so someone left this perfectly good apple at the train station today. i waited about three hours but nobody came to pick it up and i couldn’t let it go to waste so i decided to take it for myself. while i was walking home with it i realized that this was a perfect opportunity to do another one of my famous giveaways. that’s right i’m giving away this perfectly good apple.

the rules are:

  1. must be following me 
  2. i want notes so likes and reblogs count. reblog it like 40 times i don’t care. make three separate accounts and reblog it 40 times on each one 
  3. i am not responsible for the condition of the apple after i ship it

i will choose the winner sometime. good luck and have fun

never ever want to be in an arguement its too mcuh work trying to correct people bc i know theyre gonna start shit

Please give me all the advice you have on writing cover letters. Like, the closer you can get to literally just writing a cover letter for me, the better. Ok bye.

This is how I did the one for my librarian position.  I hope it helps.

Dear Person Hiring for this Job,

I am writing to ask you to consider me for X position.  This is a paragraph about why I want to do X position in general.  It includes at least one personal detail and at least one job skill I consider a particular strength.  It argues that I am passionate about this career.  It is not long.

I have had the opportunity to gain experience in this job by - paragraph about my work or study experience.  It should go from most recent experience back.  Include some details about your responsibilities/achievements in your most recent or most important positions.  If you have mostly study experience, give more detail about what exactly you studied.  If you shadowed people, mention that.  If your work experience is largely unrelated, try to shoehorn some of it in (e.g. I gained experience working with people by).  You can supplement with relevant hobbies.  (But if you do have recent, relevant work experience, you should largely be detailing that.  Only embroider the other stuff if you need to flesh it out.)  This should be the longest paragraph.

I hope you will consider allowing me to do X thing at your company.  This is a few sentences about why I want to work at your company in particular and what I think I could bring.  Try to mention at least one detail from the company website, so they know you visited it.  This is a short paragraph that parallels the first one.

Thank you very much for your time and attention.

Sincerely,

Person You Would Be a Fool Not to At Least Interview

oh my god thank you this is relevant to current interests

Two other points, to challenge what’s being said above a little:

1) Remember that the person reading this cover letter wants to know how you can contribute to the company. Not how excited you are about the position: it’s all about what they gain. Try framing the whole thing in that sense — “You would gain my X awesome skill that would help you Y with your mission.” “Here’s why I’m awesome and a great fit for making your company go better.”

2) At the end, ask for the interview. “I am available at PHONE NUMBER at your convenience. I look forward to speaking with you about this great opportunity soon.” Maybe even say you’ll be following up at a specific time and date. Ask for the job. People respond to that, and it’s a good way to fake confidence until you make it. Ask for the job.

Okay, three points. People reading cover letters get SO BORED going through them. Think about starting off with a story that relates to why you’re interested in the job, or that demonstrates a skill or a strong interest that would make you a good candidate. Be memorable — people remember stories, even (maybe especially) very little ones.

*hoards advice*

One more hint: if the job you’re applying for would require you to relocate, give some reasons why the move would be a good thing for you.  I live in “flyover country”, and when looking at candidates, we (rightly or wrongly) make assumptions about how long a person is likely to stay in the job.  All other things being equal, someone who has lived in a similar area, has relatives here, or gives some other convincing reason for wanting to live here is preferable to someone who has always lived and worked in large coastal cities and just says “I’m willing to relocate for the sake of the job.”
