So I'm back again and only with a day gap between posts-that hasn't happened in at least a year!
I'm hoping for your help; I need some career advice. Remember when I went for that dream job and I didn't get it? Well, the most amazing thing happened yesterday. The lady that I interviewed with back then sent me an email to let me know that that position had just become available again and that she encouraged me to have a look at the job posting again. Not that that means it is a sure thing, but when does it ever happen that you put in for a job, don't get it, and then they contact you 6 months later suggesting that you try again for the job?? I'm really excited!
The help that I need from anyone reading this is: I have to resubmit a cover letter and my resume. What can I do to my cover letter to make it different from last time? Do I just give a general overview of the last one to remind her why I am the best candidate for the job? Do I change it completely and say different things? (For background-the job is helping US students get settled in Australia in a uni program and fielding any questions they might have about life here, helping them get in to internships, showing them around the City, etc. So on my last cover letter I spoke about the fact that I can relate to these students as I originally came out on a study abroad program myself, I faced and continue to face the same feelings of homesickness and of being foreign in a new country, that I have a teaching background, that I enjoy meeting and working with new people, and that I want to help make these students time here the best that it can be so they love Aus as much as I do).
I also did a mock up of a weekly newsletter that they send out to all of the students after my first interview- should I resubmit that?
Thanks in advance to anyone who has advice!
