Do You Have a Job Search Goal?
Pamela Gordon sent her résumé to 9 different job postings and saw no results. Some of the jobs were for administrative assistant, one was as a marketing coordinator, and another was for a project manager. In a few of the applications, she attached a standard cover letter, which restated her experiences from her résumé. To upgrade your cover letter, see Chapter 16.
Job seekers get desperate and anxious, leading to R.A.A., or Random Acts of Application.
