Dear Li Mei,
Thank you for your comment and for your question about whether to use a period (full stop) after the abbreviation for Doctor. The answer depends on whether you are writing in American or UK (British) English. If you are writing in American English, you use a period: “Dr.” If you are writing in UK English, you do not use a period: “Dr”. In my opinion, while it is important that your manuscript be formatted in the correct language style, your cover letter can be in the style most natural to you (American or UK). However, if you want to be completely consistent, then you can prepare the cover letter in the style required by the journal.
i have just completed BE(ECE) in May 2013. i gt placed in a BPO while in college but i decided not to go for it since i thought it will not help me grow career wise. i am currently looking for job. i see many vacancies for freshers but i do not know what kind of job wil interest me.
i have a plan of doing MBA after two yrs of work experience since i have heard that once we complete MBA, we are paid high and job opportunities abroad is high. But there lies a problem again i do not knw what branch of MBA i should be taking.
i know one thing very clearly that a job that pays me high will satisfy me, but at the same time i also want a job that interests me.
i am totally confused. Please help me.
I am having a problem trying to get my cover letter going. I am applying for a job that I am under-qualified for according to their “success profile.” I do know that this position do not really need a science degree (it is just preferred) but they did put it down there. Besides, it is actually a trainee position where I will be in training for 3-4 years. Anyhow, I do not know how to bring it up and I feel that in this case it is vital that I have a cover letter to explain why I am a suitable candidate. I don’t want the hiring manager to just throw my resume out without giving me at least a chance. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
