Rfq Cover Letter Nov 2010 Calender
When I do a career planning unit, I am often amused by the students who list “design skills” or “very creative” on their resumes, yet use the exact same MS-Word default resume template.
A second observation is that students typically used their cover letters to describe their own emotions (e.g. as their burning desire for the job), rather than demonstrate their understanding of why their own skills match the employer’s needs.
Lisa Silva, describing a revelation that came during low point in her own job search, writes: “The hiring manager isn’t here to make your dreams come true. They’re in it for themselves.”
Here’s the good thing about rock bottom: Nothing is off-limits. I gave myself permission to try any and all tactics in the cover letter playbook, from throwing in a Beyoncé GIF to pretending the hiring manager and I were good friends. Finally, 103 cover letters later, I landed on one that worked.
Within an hour, I had an interview request waiting in my inbox—and then another, and another. Soon, my response rate skyrocketed from 0 to 55%, and I was scheduling interviews with Vogue, InStyle, and Rolling Stone into my calendar. In other words, this letter—fueled by an old copywriting framework called problem-agitate-solve—is powerful stuff. –Lisa Siva, The Muse
The goal of the LBJ Express Project is to finance, construct, operate and maintain a corridor of frontage road, general purpose and tolled managed lanes from east of Luna Road to east of US 75 (near Greenville Avenue) approximately 14 miles.
This includes tolled managed lanes within the right of way of I-635 and elevated tolled managed lane direct connectors along I-35E. The project also completes a continuous frontage road system along I-635 between the Dallas North Tollway and I-35E.
On Feb. 26, 2009, the Texas Transportation Commission conditionally awarded the LBJ Express Project to LBJ Infrastructure Group (formerly LBJ Development Partners), which will finance, design, construct, operate and maintain the 13-mile corridor for 52 years.
On May 7, 2009, TxDOT held a public hearing on the disclosure of financial information for the LBJ-635 Comprehensive Development Agreement. Review the public hearing summary and analysis.
On Sept. 4, 2009, TxDOT officials executed a comprehensive development agreement (CDA) with the LBJ Infrastructure Group to design, construct, finance, operate and maintain the 13-mile LBJ-635 corridor in Dallas County.
