Ok, I have been job hunting for a while in my field and it has been no-go for Electrical Technicians in my Thunder Bay. So basically I am applying at a descent call centre and the local Famous Players. No posting for either, I am told both are always hiring, and I have "refer-ers" with in each. I got the "gutts" of my cover letters done, I just don't know how to start them. I typically start with " I am responding to the advertisement...." but again, these ones are kinda like cold calls... So, who's got some ideas for me?
