I hate this SO much

Cover letters. HATE HATE cover letters. I have 2 I want to get out this weekend, but I'm on major writers block. I've never been able to write cover letters and it often literally takes me sitting blankly in front of my computer for 12+ hours before I can come up with anything. I think I would rather go to the dentist than write a cover letter.

Ugh. Anyone have any tips???

Don't regurgitate your resume. It's already in there.

What I like to do is look at what criteria an employer is asking and show them how I can fill that need.

Also, I use a statement like "I will contact you at X date to follow up on the selection process." I don't think it's being pesky, rather pro-active.

Good Luck!!!
