Has anyone shared a cover letter that landed them a job?
I don’t necessarily mean it was the deciding factor, but when you applied, you eventually got the job.
I’m curious to see what a successful cover letter looks like. So many people give advice of writing a good cover letter, but I’ve not often seen what a good cover letter looks like.
Anyone have an experience or example to share?

Happy Birthday to me!
I splurged and got myself a new job working in the private sector. No more contracting to the government. 🎉
Today’s walk felt good. A nice mid 50° day after Christmas and before the new year.
I needed to get up and take a walk this morning. I set out along a nice road paralleling train tracks so there’s no cross streets.
I passed a stump holding up part of a fence in a small yard.
A friendly pole did its job holding up power and communication lines without complaint.
Near the Midway point of my walk I passed the Bowen & Company, Inc site. I love old signs on buildings. There’s fewer around as the areas get developed and turned into luxury services or condos.
Across the street is a Pure Barre studio.
I feel like I’ve written about this before – can’t remember whether it was here or not, but when trillion-dollar companies complain that things are “hard”, what they really mean is that they “do not want to do them” or that they are “not that important”, or perhaps more tellingly, that “there is no [perceived] profit in doing it”. Because, lest we forget, Google is a company that went from zero to having a gigantic fleet of sensor-laden cars driving around every single road in as many countries as they could, just so you could look at shops and the less said about having more data to sell ads against, the better.

Dan is talking about using Maps to find the safest route home. That’s a problem Maps can’t do for me yet. For all of the
smart tools available to us, most of them aren’t very smart at all.
We had our solar system installed today. No more roof just hanging around not contributing to the household. No longer will sunny days be solely the source of sweat and discomfort.
Once the work is inspected, I can flip a switch as 21 solar panels will capture the sun’s rays and send them into The Grid.
Absolutely loving these
glitch flower paintings.

This is Leopold. He was stationed at Maine’s Fort Knox. The only fort I’ve ever visited with a library and a reading room.
Other troops were sent there a few times in history. But they elected to camp outside the fort. There were so many places for cannons. And no cannons were ever sent to the fort.
This fort was built years too late. To combat a threat long past. It’s best seen from across the river, as it sits on a hillside.
