Agree! I was searching high and low for a job when I moved here, took me 4 months, hundreds of resumes, 2 phone interviews, 2 regular interviews, til I got this one. I was sooo close on getting another one before this one, but sooo glad I didn't get it, cos this one pays SO much more! Don't worry IntlSet, you'll get yours too soonNoriko said:Wow that sucks! I hope you find the job of your dreams soon, maybe all of the ones you didnt get were just making room for the kick ass one you'll get
actually, i read an article a while ago where they interviewed someone from HR of a big firm and that guy said if the covering letter sucks he throws the application away, unread.IntlSet said:Man, I'm bummed. I go to what's considered a good university, I'm graduating with two degrees, I have excellent grades and pretty relevant work experience... maybe my cover letter is arrogant (tooting my own horn too loudly?)?... But I heard hardly anybody even reads those, they just go straight to the resume. I know that my old boss never read cover letters, he used to tear them off and throw them away!
:sad2: Tough market!
I agree! The professors has very good resources from former students/colleagues... if you can ask them for referrals, it will work out greatShoppeGirl said:Have you tried talking to your professors? Would it be safe for me to assume that the field your interested in working in is related to your major? If so, start knocking on the doors of your professors . . . the often do have contact outside of the academic world! Good luck!!
