I think this cover letter is GREAT! Honest, socially aware, realistic. Able to spell and punctuate - although at least one typo; and okay grasp of language and humour. Not sure what 'sales associate' means.....I assume it is a euphermism for shop assistant? SO......as long as the job was 'entry level' -as it seems - with only generic skills required to start with, I'd definitely like to meet them to find out whether they were a knob or a star. Think some of you lot seem to have slightly arrogant, self-important, judgemental tendancies yourselves to dismiss him so quickly. :)
Here at The Muse, we’re fans of unconventional cover letters—doing something a little different that sets you apart from other applicants and lets your personality shine through.
As long as, you know, it’s done well.
We’ve spent our morning cringing after being forwarded the World’s Worst Cover Letter (as we’ve officially dubbed it) and couldn’t resist sharing it with you as an example of what you should never, ever do. Please.
And, fair warning: If you do send in something like this, the hiring manager might just pass it along to us.
