I’d tailor your resume according to the position. Make sure you have a referral so your application actually gets seen. Cover letter in my experience is totally optional; I got hired without one.

My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills.

I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
