I don’t know if she’d remember me, and I’m not sure if it’s helpful or relevant to include in a cover letter that we met previously.
If I make it to the interview level, would mentioning it help me be memorable or would it be out of left field?
The fact that I gained the degree doesn’t push me above any other applicants, since it’s one of the base requirements, but the fact that I shadowed her before might make it obvious that I’ve always been interested in working in an academic library in a small college.
Other examples include not meeting project deadlines and giving out the wrong quotes – and expecting me to handle our clients’ negative reactions.
This has happened on several occasions in the past month.
