This is a one character spelling error that should be super easy fix.

Careers saves the previous cover letter and brings it up when I apply to another job. It also throws a useful warning:

This cover letter is identical to another that you send.

present-tense "send" should actually be past-tense "sent".

Cover Letter is Identical To Another That you Send

  • Personally, I think it would be better as 'will send'. I mean come on, it's the truth. – Tim Post Dec 27 '12 at 4:38

    should be ...that you HAVE SENT..., but i'd ask the english.stackexchange.com people to chime in.. – d-_-b Dec 27 '12 at 5:21
  • @iight +1.. Even I felt it should be "you have sent". – iDev Dec 27 '12 at 6:06
  • "have sent" sounds right to me. Will check with @WillCole and fix. – Max Dec 27 '12 at 14:28

Thanks for the report Michael. This should be fixed now.
