So... I applied my advertising writing approach to my application.
Kinda like the urban myth about the dude who turned in a blank page for his philosophy 101 course answering the question to "what is a risk". Ha! I took a risk. Did I go overload? Ah, maybe. Here's a sampler of my letter:
"I feel I possess the required skills and experience for the position. Which is why I can tell you with all the confidence in the world that you should pick me! Attached you will find a list of your requirements and how I meet each and every one of them (and beyond). If hired, you will find me a highly dedicated and motivated employee. At times my motivation may be overwhelming if not entertaining."Oh yeeees I did... IN YOUR FACE! What have I got to lose? A job I don't yet have? It's not like I'm unemployed and have been starving for the past months (maybe a little starving, bye-bye back fat! Hope to never see your ugly rear again!)
Well, it's not like if I wrote "as I'm sitting here on the toilet deeply reflecting on a future with your corporation..." What do you think will happen? Will I get a call? Or will this be filed under file #13 (trash bin)?
To be continued...
