So there’s been this relatively recent term that’s used in the HR and job-searching circles. You might have come across it, or perhaps not yet. But if you haven’t, I’m here to introduce you to it. It’s called a “Pain Letter.”
A Pain Letter is like a cover letter, but it is much more powerful than a cover letter. A Pain Letter doesn’t talk about you, the way a traditional cover letter does. It talks about the letter’s recipient instead – your hiring manager.
