Cover letter to GM
« on: Nov 07, 2007, 09:58 am »
Having written many different cover letters, each tailored to the production and recipient, I'm struggling with my latest, to a NY general manager.  In all honesty, I haven't worked with many general managers, and I don't know what skills/accomplishments/attributes I should highlight in my resume.  That is, I don't know what a GM is looking for in a new stage management candidate. 

So here's my question / starting point of this discussion:  Do you change the type of information you include, based on the position of the recipient (I certainly do)?  What sorts of information do you include in your cover to a GM?  What are GMs generally looking for in a SM?
