Please look over my resume? Will I be hire or tossed in the trash pile?
I'm hoping this will only need a few more changes. What do you think? Would you hire me vs. other new college grads? thx Attention (insert name here): I am interested in pursuing the job opening in your marketing department, because my experience and enthusiasm to diversify my skills will compliment your company’s overall goal to promote brand awareness and improve customer relations. I am passionate about the opportunities I pursue and am confident that my experience in marketing, social media, sales, and journalism will make me a good fit for your company. Since 2008, I developed and self-managed a successful online jewelry and collectibles business, where I was awarded Ebay Power Seller status for my consistency with good customer service and high quality merchandise. I also developed and managed a Website for a family owned construction company that required proficient use of applications like Cyberduck and iweb. By developing flyers and business cards that I distributed at local events I helped the company build community exposure and expand its building contracts for an additional year. Recently, I served as a content writer and copy editor for the Rescue Mission’s monthly newsletter. Part of my duties included writing copy for a 20,000+ audience, performing editing duties for the CEO and other executive staff, and designing and managing a smaller biweekly newsletter for the Rescue Mission Youth Program. Working with the organization required proficiency of Microsoft Office Suite, the creative ability to cultivate and successfully manage an online blog that raises awareness of child homelessness, and good knowledge of the Associated Press writing style. Among the rewards was building a loyal readership for the Rescue Mission’s social media channels and attaining a celebrity endorsement via his Facebook fan page. My principle goal is to invest myself into an enterprise I’m passionate about, and to diversify my skills along the way. I am a firm believer that education does not stop after college and that striving for self-improvement in my career and my personal life will maximize my ability to approach goals successfully. I look forward to speaking with you in the coming weeks about how I can help promote your marketing team. Best Regards, Stacey XXX PS: I will follow up in two weeks to confirm that you received this material, and to inquire about setting up an interview. Edit: It's actually "improve your marketing team" I'm sure you know I meant "cover letter." My 3-year-old was nagging me as I was posting this and I wrote the wrong word. Originally I did not have the PS. I posted this here yesterday and someone suggested I add that. Why do you have to be such a complete jerk about it????? Well, "Curious". At least we know my research/investigative skills are not inept. It's easy to personally attack someone from behind a computer, but your anonymity is now exposed!!! It must be nice to sit your 250lb miserable butt in front of the buffet at Disneyland, Sarah Colnic!!!

This is a typical cover letter and not a Resume. The cover letter requires improvements... More
