Yesterday I heard back from the recruiting firm, and they have sent my materials to six places. Yay! The only awkward (or wonderful?) thing is that one of the places they sent my materials is the place where I already applied on Day 2. I don’t know what the etiquette is in a situation like that, but I decided to let the recruiter know that I have already applied for that position.
I wrote two new cover letters today. I specifically described how I could contribute to two of the places that received my materials yesterday. I may try to write the rest of those letters today or I may not tackle it all until tomorrow. Writing a good cover letter (as opposed to a generic cover letter) is hard work.
My beautiful, hardcover, orange copy of Amy Cuddy’s Presence: Bringing Your Boldest Self to Your Biggest Challenges arrived in the mail yesterday. I haven’t started reading it, but I will, and I suspect I’ll be quoting it here. It looks so good!
