Dear God, My Eyes Are Bleeding!

Well, they arne't really bleeding, it just feels like they may well do just that at any minute.

I've been applying for jobs for a good portion of the day and it's staarting to take its toll. With the exception of the 20 minute-ish nap I took today, I have been staring at a computer or printouts for job ads. I print them out in case the DOL cracks down and wants to see if I've been trying to find a job and where I've applied. This way, should they ask, I can hand over a few big folders of stuff. Take that! But I digress. So yeah, I'm feeling kind of shot at the moment.

I normally have somewhat of a template for letters but I do actually customize every one as well as the "Objective" line on my resume. It's a pain in the ass to do it this way, but it doens't looked canned. the onyl problem with this is what every time I send one of the damn things out, I have to go through it with a fine-tooth comb to make sure I don't have any parial old sentences or botched up tenses. Sigh, this is the part that kills me. Blech.

So there, I've ranted and I feel much better now.

I hate it when you have to review everything with a fine tooth comb, BUT like you mentioned it doesn't look canned.

Good Luck. I hope your hard work pays off!
