I am tired of writing cover letters. I am becoming more proficient in the practice and have even considered starting a business of applying to jobs for people while they actually enjoy their time off. I am pretty sure I can get it down to a science:
1. Request soft versions of writing samples from applicants, sorting them to identify specific key words and phrases common to the applicant.
2. Write two to three form cover letters, based upon areas of career interest.
3. Similarly, mock up two to three CVs to accompany aforementioned letters.
4. Begin submitting applications, following up, and communicating progress to applicants.
On the other hand, I'd probably tire of writing cover letters for someone else so I guess I'll just stick to my own for now.
