A few weeks ago, I noticed that my Dream Job had opened. It is about 5 years too soon. It is currently being advertised on several large national job sites. I have been working on my cover letter and curriculum vitae since I first saw the advertisement. Friends, colleagues and my husband have edited these documents extensively. They are as shiny as I can make them and as targeted to this position specifically as possible. It is only this one job that interests me, this one opportunity.
In my cover letter I stated that I had loved this organization since I first stepped in the door. My husband pushed me to answer the question why. He felt that saying I loved it was meaningless in and of itself. Why did I love it? I finally wrote that I loved this organization because it is where I learned to make my dreams come true.
I uploaded my application this evening. I hope this dream comes true.
