- it's lonely
- I feel guilty b/c there are things I should be doing that I can't motivate myself to do
I discovered this week that Metro HR requires a new app/résumé for every position, which is a waste of time and energy for everyone involved. So, yesterday I put in two apps for the public library system. And I decided that I've been trying too long to stick with the formal, traditional cover letters. One of the positions is for a kid's services position so I used a bold typeface with colors sprinkled in and, of course, I always use a shaded linen paper.
Hopefully this non-traditional approach will get me an interview at least.
