Day 3 - I hate job applications

There is this job I really want. It's 10 hours/week and $10/hour. Just the right amount of time and the pay isn't bad. It's a cataloging job in the Journalism and Mass Communication library. Sounds like a really interesting place. And I really want to get my hands dirty in some real cataloging work. I think it's what I really want to do. But I feel like I've already screwed up in my communication with the head librarian. I called her Deborah. I don't know if that's okay. But I've already established myself by calling her that. And now, I have to say "Mrs. Semonche" in the cover letter. It feels weird to write this cover letter so formally when I have already spoken with her on a semi-casual basis. UGH.

    Addressing someone in a letter is just formality of course, and has little to do with how well the call went. On the other hand, if it really went well, why not add a comma and her first name anyways.

    I got a job recently by giving up, chucking all form and just writing saying they should have a look at my online cv (resume). It worked.

    So write.
