Nope, just had to send out about 20 _HANDWRITTEN_ cover-letters and
resumes, in German. Then quickly fly over to Germany for three interviews,
preferably the next day. Wrapping a brick in paper doesn't seem like a bad
test. Shows how one treat materials, whether one pays attention to detail...
Actually when posing my question it was more directed to those on the list
who take on "apprentices" or long-term students.
