Anyone willing to look over my cover letter?

Postby piccolittle » Thu Jun 14, 2012 10:52 am

As it says in the subject. I'm applying to job fairs at the moment, and thinking about mass mails as soon as I get the rest of my grades in. I wrote this cover letter quickly and it sounds like one of those "I have fancy words but don't say anything" fluff pieces. Advice and general ripping to shreds would be much appreciated! I will PM it to you if you respond.

just a quick Q, are you referring to yourself as a "rising 2L" or "rising second year" or "second year" or otherwise? Trying to figure out what to use.

I'm going with "rising second-year student."
