The government department I am working for right now is looking for an intern and they asked to interview and assess applications, which i was happy to do. Seeing as I had never done such a job before, I decided to dig out some of my old letters and search online for the great cover letters and resumes.
I came across this:
Now its on the HBR so it may cause some to lose sight of reality but is that really a great example of a cover letter? I'm biased so I can't look at my letters with an objective eye but I don't want to screw this up either so would love to hear some thoughts.
1) What do you make of that letter?
2) Whats the best one you've ever seen?
