Sometimes I will apply to jobs that I find on LinkedIn or Indeed and not bother to add a cover letter.
I do this because:
- it’s a job that didn’t appear that interesting (why do I even bother anyways…?)
- or I don’t think I have much of a chance (but still want to see if I get a response)
- Is this even worth my time? (I should probably put that time into jobs that I do want)
- Are there any long term detrimental effects to this? (do blacklists exist for “weak applicants”?)
