I loathe writing cover letters. Definitely much harder than resumes. The best cover letters ought to be the result of thorough research into the company and the job opening, telling a compelling story of why you are the right candidate. And after you put in all that work, it will get the same passing glance as the resume. Something very disheartening about it.

One of these days I'm going to send somebody a cover letter that reads "You need code for money. I need money for code. Looking forward to hearing from you!"
