Anybody have any suggestions for
a) How to get revved up to self-promote? Do you listen to the theme from Rocky? What works for you?
b) What’s the most important thing to get across in a cover letter?
You’d think there would be a 10 Simple Rules article on this, but somehow there isn’t.
Having just done a round of cover letters when applying for my PhD position, I’d also like to ask those who are a couple of steps ahead: What differentiated your post-doc and/or faculty cover letters with those from grad school? For faculty searches your teaching experience comes into play, but are there any other tips or tricks we should all know about?
