Re: Case study: how to get a job
I learned how to write a cover letter in the 12th grade. It wasn't called a T-letter. It was called a _cover letter_. :)
I was referring to a particular type of effective cover letter that has been much discussed on this list. But yes, what I received was simply a good old-school cover letter as I was taught to write in, um, eighth grade, I think ;-)
Your general point--that hardly anyone bothers anymore--is exactly what I was getting at, and I'm as mystified as you are that people who claim to be professional communicators seem to be lacking this very basic kind of communication skill.
