Automatic Cover Letter

Recommended Posts

Ejoc

So I put this together to make applying for jobs alittle faster. I have some generic cover letters where I mostly update the company info and job title, so I made a little script that I just enter the information into and it places the new coverletter with the company information into the clipboard so I can paste it into an email.

An example cover letter(just to show the tags):

Me
My contact info

<DATE>

<COMPANY ADDRESS>

<HR CONTACT>:

I want the <JOB TITLE> postion you have at <COMPANY NAME>

Thank you,

Me

Result:

Me
My contact info

June 13, 2005

AutoIt
1234 Overthere RD
The, Internet

To Whom It May Concern:

I want the Dish Washer postion you have at AutoIt

Thank you,

Me

cool program, but I wouldn't recommend using it. A cover letter shouldn't be generic, it should be the summary that bridges your resume to the job descsription, and should be taylored for each job. It should be flashy and quickly get the readers attention, instead of being a form letter.

Just my 2 cents...

Interesting concept which might have potential in other area. Don't discount this code.

Cheers.. :(
