depends on the company, industry, and position. if you need to clarify something that isn't easily explained on your resume, then yes. like if you're applying for a job in another state. you can explain that you will be relocating there in x months and would be interested in the opportunity to work for the company once settled in, etc.

but if the job ad specifically says no cover letters, don't include one.

When I was in the bank, the woman ahead of me had a little dog with her. As soon as I open my bag to take out my wallet, the dog sits up on his hind legs, front paws together, begging. I told the dog, "I'm sorry I don't have any treats." May be I should have said I don't have any money to spare.

I'm job hunting too.

I'm feeling much more awake after clearing the sidewalk, steps, and porch this morning before the office opened. My lazy ass is almost considering exercising in the mornings just so i can feel this adrenaline daily.

Even in the rain? I'd have to admit even then. Damn I wished I'd brought my umbrella today. I may borrow the brolly some one left behind in the office. It's a yellow & blue Ikea one slightly damaged. Or wait out the rain.

Ha! I prefer my bread sliced & toasted when making ice cream sandwiches. Were my parents slackers or cool when they would make dinner ice cream and toasted bread with peanut butter back when my sister & I were young?

toasted sounds good. using some portugese sweet bread like pao doce.

warm soft bread and slightly melted ice cream

Exactly, that contrast between the warm bread & beginning to melt ice cream is the best part. I had to look up pao doce. Some of the images reminded me of ensaymada others like challah or brioche.

that's like my strength man. I know for a fact that I've gotten face to face interviews for jobs I had no business applying to based on the Cover Letter.

I get real creative and wacky to a certain extent. Or do something odd like drop an obscure historical reference. We're socially conditioned to think this is impolite or not normal, but honestly if a recruiter has seen 2000 cover letters of the same isht it definitely makes you stand out.

the 2nd to last place I applied to replaced the cover letter with just sending a video of yourself explaining in one minute how their site works. i had to borrow a buddy's webcam for it.

i hear that's a sign of things to come. also timed online tests.
