“New graduate student looking for a job in my field. Although a lot of people have told me that they are rejected a lot before getting their first jobs, I feel absolutely dreadful even applying for a job. Feeling nauseous and blank every time I write a cover letter. My written English is pretty terrible and even when people read over mine and say it's fine, I feel like it's not good enough.”
