My drunk cover letter
i’m posting this to keep the author anonymous
The other day, in a carride, someone said to me, “You know, sometimes you do immature things that make me realize your age.”
It caught me off guard. This whole time I’ve been playing the “more mature than my peers” card with a smug grin on my face. I graduated high school, and college, respectfully. I rise with the sun, go to work at 9am like a productive adult and usually am asleep before midnight during the week.
But last night I applied to a job posting from Craigslist. Drunk and unclever. At 11:19 pm. On a Sunday.
Copy pasta from my cover letter:
I am interested in this position because I want to avoid being a waitress with an English and Journalism degree for as long as I possibly can.
I might as well have signed the copy letter “HIRE ME LOL.”
My resume, portfolio, references are solid and my honest intentions are good.
Do I stand a chance?
