I say that because it requires you to guess at what the hiring manager’s problems are, which can be hard to do from the outside and carries a high risk of coming across as insulting or uninformed or both.
It true that you should frame your application in terms of what the hiring manager needs, but you don’t need to go guessing at what problems she may or may not have.
Plus, you could learn a few things from the complex process that you may be able to use for later houses.
An estate agent who takes the time to explain the process demonstrates dedication to you and his/her job.
The ideal agent will be at a happy medium; not too many clients, not too few.
If your estate agent is busy, that means they’re getting that much business for a reason and they’re qualified for the job.
The thing that this “pain letter” advice and so much like it ignores is this: Applying for a job doesn’t require gimmicks to stand out and be noticed.
The way you stand out is by having a resume that shows a strong track record of getting results in the areas that they’re hiring for, writing a compelling cover letter that explains why you’d excel at the role as they’ve laid it out, and being friendly, responsive, and enthusiastic.
That’s not anything you can sell as a system and it’s not especially exciting …
I can't find an answer to my exact situation here or elsewhere.
