To Whom It May Concern:
I detest writing cover letters. I feel so much pressure to write something witty, creative, and eye-catching that I just freeze up and all of my brilliant ideas go out the window. Therefore, you’ll never want to take the time to sit down with me in an interview and find out that I am a sparking person face-to-face. Also, I spend so much time on your website that I just sit here and want to write, “I love your company. I really wanna work for you. I think I would be an excellent addition to your team. Please hire me ASAP.”
I know that cover letters are all about whoring yourself out and making yourself sound like the most scintillating person around. But let’s face it, I am just not very good at kissing ass and bragging about myself. It’s really hard to sound humble while spouting off my myriad achievements. I mean, really, who wants to hire that person who doesn’t know when to just shut up and stop talking about how wonderful they are. Obnoxious, much?
I do have a passion for creativity and design; as such, I would love to work for your agency in the creative arena. I choose to throw my energy into the unexplored, to embrace innovation and use it as an advantage over competition, which I hope is apparent in my attached resume. Any time that you have to speak with me about opportunities with your company and to discuss further my qualifications is appreciated. I am available via phone or email anytime and in person beginning December 17th. I am looking forward to hearing from you.
