Charlie Morss on 01 Jun We also received another 25 and counting after the deadline; unread and unlamented. I think the usage here is correct. This is an expert from a blog post from the CEO at LiveStream, who said it was the best cover letter he has ever received. Here are some more students with great stories to tell:
The first thing I noticed in this cover letter was how much language was boilerplate. Who you work with is even more important than who you hang out with, because you spend a lot more time with your workmates than your friends. Exactly, that’s the irony. They immediately tell you if someone wants this job or just any job.

They ended up offering the job to someone else who had 37signalw experience, but I was second in line; when the person they offered it to refused because she thought the job would be too demandingthey offered it to me instead and that was my break into the field. If someone knows their shit and doesn’t piss other people off, that’s enough personality for me.
That’s what interviews and references are for.

The “forget the resume” part, or perhaps the “we don’t believe in years of irrelevance” — they believe 6 months and 5 years of experience are roughly the same when it comes to productivity. If someone includes a cover letter, I read it lettre. And the last bit of advice: But a descriptive site showcasing his passion convinced us otherwise.
Turns out, it was everything he needed to do lettter join the team. I think we need a way for IT professionals to demonstrate useful differentiation. A former boss, a teacher, even a friend or fellow student.
