Speaking of hiring practices...

My very bestie wrapped up her awesome but stressful (paid) internship contract early in June and hasn't been able to land something new yet, though she's had a few interviews. She, like the rest of us, are of the opinion that if they could only nail their cover letter they could get an interview and wow their way into the new position.

The problem is, how exactly does a person craft a cover letter that hiring people actually read and decide is worthy of an interview? I would love to hear from some hiring managers/those involved in the hiring process about what are definite do's and don'ts.

(Also I came back to Jez from a break and bam! GT privileges. Fuckin' Fridays, guys.)
