Ugh I feel like I have lost all sense of my own identity and life experiences. I have written so many cover letters in the past 3-4 months. Granted, I have my work cut out for me because I'm trying to make a bit of a change in my career path but it's just the worst. I am a terrible sales person and I am especially terrible at talking myself up. And the few interviews I've managed to get go really well but then I don't get the job so I'm starting to take it kind of personally. I just want to be like, hire me. I will do anything you want. I'm smart and can work a computer and won't heat up smelly lunches in the microwave. I feel like that sounds better then blah blah blah my skills blah blah blah excellent fit for the position blah sucking up.
Cover letters are just the worst.
