Forgive me if this is a stupid question, or should seem obvious. I have not been submitting cover letters to jobs that I have applied to from job boards. If I send my resume cold to a company, not advertising on a board, I will send a cover letter, as a means of introduction. The reason I have not been sending to job board posting, is that I feel I would need to customize for each application, which seems cumbersome, given the number of applications one might submit. Is this faulty logic on my part, and am I reducing my chances significantly by not including a cover letter for board posted jobs? Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance!
I can't believe that a large portion of job applications are screened by computers or recruiters that haven't got a clue what the job is. I have a very successful record as an executive but computer kick my resume out because I don't have a degree, even though I have done the job at VP level and I am applying for mid level work after 20 years of high performance. I need to lie about a degree just to get past the screen.

I apply for at least 20-30 jobs a day for months on Indeed. I have extensive experience and a good resume, however I never get one response, and I get emails from Indeed we want you to apply for this role etc. I also get emails from Indeed that the “employer” hasn’t even opened or looked at the resume. Either they are posting fake jobs to support the pump of the jobs numbers or they don’t even have a connection with the employer. Why would they not even open or view the application/resume.
When applying for positions that ask this question, it is often left with 2 options to choose from. Yes or No. What I really want to put, if the option were available, in a comment box is; "What are your passing qualifications?" Or is it just assumed that it must be "free and clear" of anything current? Does it include past/expunged? I am ok with the question "have you ever been convicted of a felony?" because that is a definite "NO". I have been instructed by several friends and past colleagues to just answer "yes" instead. Is that frowned upon later? #jobsearch #advice #felony #wordsofadvice
Sometimes I really wonder if the job market is as bad as these employers are saying it is. I was pretty much told I had the position at this one company and 2 weeks later they sent me a email stating they decided to move on with another candidate, and a few days later I noticed the job was posted again on several other job boards I’m beginning to think a lot of the job boards are a joke #jobsearch #application #interview
