I get all kinds of conflicting advice on what to write. I've seen sources that say some up your skills on your CL and others say do not repeat what is on your resume. Well, I don't have specific skills listed on my resume; I keep my job descriptions pretty generic. I just feel like nurses have a pretty good idea what a nurse has skills in according to the type of jobs listed on the resume. Plus, I don't know how to put my skills on a cover letter without making it look like a list. I am truly clueless. I don't want to sound lame on my cover letter. Does anyone have any good website sources or advice on cover letters that will stand out in an area that's not exactly suffering from a shortage of new nurses? And how do you stand out when you've worked in a completely different field then your applying for???I have written a lot of cover letters and still don't have the job I want. I use a block format and I try to address either the recruiter or the nurse manager specifically. I have one last shot at my dream career opportunity and really want to make an impression. I am open to absolutely any advice, no matter how common sense it might seem. Thanks!!!
