I don't get that sense, though I guess it's possible - I think she's just a poor writer.CIBC... she sounds unstable. Hopefully she doesn't actually have any good connections because I wouldn't trust her not to say crazy things to them.Holy. Cow.
And LOL...gotta laugh at this stuff.
Argument with the girl who criticized my cover letter...
I know you say you don't mean to sound insulting, but I don't understand how you can think that telling me that my cover letter looks nothing remotely like a cover letter can be perceived as anything but extremely insulting and condescending. It is most certainly NOT a reiteration of my resume and you have no idea how many people tell me how refreshing it is not to read the same old stuff over and over again.
I wrote in my original post that my cover letter gets a huge reaction, I get tons of interviews and many, many people rave about it, including some very powerful and famous people in the industry.
I was clearly not asking for feedback on my cover letter and your tone, whether your meant it or not, was very condescending.
- If you really do think you have a thick skin, you'll be kind enough to follow my request that you take a breather, and re-read everything BEFORE you judge so quickly, cruelly, AND ERRONEOUSLY. YOU MISUNDERSTOOD IN A MAJOR WAY. I deserve an APOLOGY, and here's why...
I HAD OFFERED TO HELP CONNECT YOU WITH A LOCAL PROMINENT THEATRE, and I HAD TOLD YOU I WANTED TO SEE YOUR CL AND RESUME because I WANTED TO LEARN from YOU. From the start, I DID EXPLAIN my reaction and FURTHERMORE, I backed it up in regards to what we were taught. I even wondered if teachings had CHANGED!!
I didn't understand it. Did you send an attachment? I am EXTREMELY HURT that YOU truly decided I was being rude!
I'd never seen a CL that read like a conversational version of a resume, and what someone could mistake for a personal letter! I was confused and only SHARING WITH you what was normal and acceptable to me...because I WANTED TO LEARN WHAT WAS IT ABOUT THE HISTORICAL CL YOU GAVE ME THAT MADE YOU SUCH A SUCCESS!! I couldn't tell if it was a resume or a CL, because qualities of BOTH words were used as ELEMENTS IN THE CREATION OF THAT VERY GOOD...[whatever you call it].
I had SO LOOKED FORWARD to forging a bond with someone else who actually cares about the arts: Sometimes it feels like just me, LOL!
- YOU ARE SO LUCKY IF IT WORKS FOR YOU, and it's nice to know what OTHERS FIND TO BE HELPFUL. Lashing out at me will not help in the job search dept., and I said I was offering my UNSOLICITED OPINION because I'd wanted from the beginning to HELP A FELLOW THEATRE-LOVER...but not one who lets anger color what could have been a great connection to someone else in the arts!!!!!!
Do you think English isn't her first language???
