Essentally you have a program which you write different examples of your job experiences and skills, and organize the tags on it based on what field it is in and what kind of example it is.

Next is you find the general attributes of the company and write up a few description about it, e.g. what field it is,what you like about it.

It will then based off your answers, autogenerate a coverletter for your resume.

Of course it can be semi automatic, with a real time text editor which will constantly suggest examples on the right hand side of your window.

p.s. You can't just copy info off another person of course, otherwise there will be a possiblity that the coverletter will seem too similar.

       Have it scan the job posting and the company's website for keywords, and pull them from your resume for personalization.

       Incorrectly spelling //jobsekers// was enough for19 me.
4whom, Jun 02 2011
  

       Technically, //jobsekers// was spelled correctly. What was misspelled was "jobseekers".

       Yep [ytk] (hope I got that right), that is why I placed the 'bakery quotation marks, //<string>//, around it...

       why the hell is everyone so obsessed with spelling around here? The possible snag I can see with the idea is, if the letter dose such a good job of selling you, that the interviewer finds you to be a disappointment in person.

       j paul: I'm sure thats for another halfbaked idea, e.g. mind self-control chip for job interviews.

       /if the letter dose such a good job of selling you, that the interviewer finds you to be a disappointment in person./ I guess that would be a letter overdose.
