For many of you, it is time to initiate the job search now before things start to get busy again in the fall. That means getting those cover letters going. Perhaps the most important thing to remember is that the job of the cover lettercover letter is to get you an interview, to generate enough interest that they are curious enough to meet you. It is not a repetition of your resume, though it should entice the reader to read your resume. The cover letter should clearly define what you bring to the table.

Behind the Lowercase d

I have recently been reflecting on arguably the largest breakthrough in genetics research – it changed the science world forever and has particular significance in offering insights behind The Lower Case d. Just bear with me.

It was 1995 when the Human Genome Project surfaced led by American scientists from the US Government. It imparted spectacular insights into the genetic make-up of humans. Its findings indicated that the genome of humans is unique across our race with each individual possessing a different genetic structure. The only exception being twins who share the same make-up.

But while genomes are unique, further research revealed that the genetic makeup of humans is actually remarkably similar. In fact we are 99.9% the same at the core.
