    I bring a copy of my resume on nice paper, a cover letter and a list of references typed up.

    I never know what to do about this either. Cover letter addressed to HR upon applying for the job? Since applications/resumes rarely go straight to a hiring manager anymore, I am unsure. I hate to have the resume/cover letter forwarded to a hiring manager with the wrong name on it.

    I'm not sure if it is proper or not... I included a folder with my cover letter, resume, reference list, official transcript, letters of recommendation, copies of my CPR/ ACLS cards, and a copy of the certificate of completion for a dysrythmia course I took.

    It worked. I got offered jobs at each place I applied. My cover letter listed some of the experience I had with specific diagnoses working as an extern. This sparked a conversation about the approach towards caring for this type of patient and resulted in impressed looks between interviewers after my explanation of care.

    When I interviewed, the nurse manager actually read my cover letter. That was how my interview started and the rest is history. I like to say that my cover letter helped me land the best job!
