Friday...The Cover Letter

Second post and what does my life have in store for me today? Well, I will be baking cookies for my daughter's Halloween Party at Fairbanks Riding Club. She will be dressing up the horse she rides as Lady Gaga. I will also be trying to get a resume sent to a company in Carlsbad if I perfect my cover letter, which is my topic today.

All of us, okay excluding the under 20 crowd, have had to look for a job that requires a resume, which I customize for every job I apply for, and a cover letter. Every thing I read, the cover letter is your one time to introduce yourself, highlight accomplishments and how you and the skills you have gained over the course of your career can help their organization succeed. Well, I find this task almost impossible as many companies are looking for a miracle worker, four or more different employees rolled up into one.

It amazes me, so the task of writing the cover letter is daunting to say the least.  I plough through and at times an epiphany comes to me and I think my cover letter rocks. Then no phone call. It is discouraging but I daily remind myself that I am not in control, God is. That is the important thing that I must remember. So, while I am putting the finishing touches on the current cover letter that I am tackling today, I will remind myself that this state of unemployment is only temporary and God does have a plan for me. He is just allowing me to see the next step in my journey not the next mile or two.

Have a blessed day!
