    I had a really hard time getting a job, this last time, so I don't dare give any advice, I think my resume and cover letter are pathetic, so no help here, sorry. besides I hate having to sell myself, I'd never buy me! /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    Here's a start

    "I solve problems, if there was a problem, I'd take it and crack it's [darn] head open. I slaughter problems with a grim lust for thier death. I'm pretty cool, but I'm humble too. My hands are dirty (from hard WORK) but my soul is pure. Loud loud loud, heavy heavy heavy, I reconstruct a flimsy sheetmetal edifice into a proud diamondplate reinforced obelisk of doom. YOU SHALL BANG ON IT LIKE THOU WERE A MONKEY BUT THOU SHALL NOT DEFEAT MY WORK. I enjoy popcorn. The thicker the drink can the better the drink. MY CAN IS SOLID TITANIUM. IF YOU TRY TO CRUSH IT ON YOUR HEAD YOU SHALL KILL YOURSELF AND THE CAN SHALL LAUGH! I am a tangerine dream to you! Bright white clouds in the blue sky, and I AM THE SUN! I AM THE SUN! I AM IRON MAN!

    Thank you

    I cover letter is an introduction. It should be short but to the point - "I read your ad in (newspaper, publication, etc.) and I'm very interested in this position."

    I can PM or email an example if you wish.
