I am going to vent.
I absolutely hate writing cover letters. We must apply for so many jobs, and every time we are expected to write an individualized letter explaining just how much we love the position. The thing is, I really don't care. I just need a job. Okay? I just need 1/500 to hit. Does anyone have time to research each firm? Not really. We just bull and they know it. Oh sometimes we really want a job. But you can't just apply for those jobs or you could end up living with your parents. I'd just like to write:
To Whom It May Concern,
I'm applying because you posted a law job. I will need one of those after graduation. I haven't had time to thoroughly review the job posting, but I promise to read it if you give me an interview. At this point, I'm willing to entertain whatever sort of legal work. I'm sure I'd be great. Yes, of course, I have excellent grades and a pretty resume. It's all attached.
