Do you know who the program manager is? I would get that persons contact information and send him/her an email and bypass HR. 

And honesetly, if you think HR would toss your application/resume a good coverletter is not going to change that probably. If they your eval history there isnt much you can change for them.  Most people dont really read them.

Which then leads me to the question, do you really need a cover letter? Are you submitting by email? Electronic application?

@mrstilly:  Maybe contact your old job and ask them how you should go about writing the cover letter.  They might be able to tell you that it’s not worth it…or that hey you can just have your old job back…or something else.

@mrstilly:  I would contact the manager directly and explain how excited you are for a similar opportunity and would love to apply to the job. Let him/her know that you will be applying formally, but also wanted to reach out to him/her directly and was wondering if you could set up an unofficial interview/conversation regarding the position. Then use that time to ask questions about the job. Hopefully the manager will like you enough to push you through the official interview process.
