I use a method for fabricating cover letters and resumes.
I tailor my documents to match the jobs I'm applying for.
My method involves annotating my work history with phrases describing my work, my personal projects, my school experience, etc. I've stored common annotations in a large spreadsheet in order to reuse some of my previous work.
Everything relevant to the job is represented. This is the most successful method I've tried and I'd prefer to keep using it.
This process takes quite a long time to produce viable documents.
I'd like to automate the process.
I'm in the process of doing my own research and developing a scripting solution as an alpha method for automating the process. I want to know if this has been done before; To save me some time and trouble.
Thanks for your input.
