I interviewed at an agency a year ago but didn’t get the job. I submitted a cover letter with a sort of unique intro they have a new opening. Should I use the same cover letter into or change it?

Can’t hurt to change it. Probably will take you 10-15 min to come up with something.

Change it. If the same person reads it again this year, you’ll look lazy.

Thanks that’s what I figured

Yeah, especially if you’re a writer. At least change the first few lines.

People still read cover letters?

Not me. If I have an open position posted I usually get 50-100 submissions. The resume and book will tell me what I need to know.

Anyone here work for any of the LBMC offices in Tennessee and willing to share their experience?

I am in tax so any insight into that specifically would be much appreciated!

So a company I interviewed with took me to the final round but rejected me for an architect role. Then, two months later the hiring manager hits me up for a manager role he thought I would be a good fit before the job was posted. We had a call and he said he thought I would be a long shot replying back to him. Also, he said everyone liked me and no need to interview. He said he has to post it and let HR do their thing before he can make a final decision. Why post a job if you want me for it?
