Yikes, did I actually write that???

April 21, 2010

Was going through some old files today and came across this cover letter that I wrote years ago:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I’m currently seeking a full-time position in Music/Entertainment. For eight years, I have been a writer/producer for XYZ Company. In fact, I wrote several (special programs) for XYZ. In addition, I have also been freelance copywriting for ABC Company for nearly two years.

I hope to find a position that would allow my creativity to come alive. I am highly motivated, upbeat, and always willing to go the extra mile.

Enclosed is my resume. Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely…

YIKES!!!

Dear Sir or Madam?

Find a position that would allow my creativity to come alive?

Highly motivated, upbeat, and willing to go the extra mile?

Was I applying for an anonymous company that specialized in cheesy statements and over-used clichés?

It’s right up there with, “Did I really wear that for my senior high school portrait?”

And yes, by the way, I did wear a dress.
