Hire me!

Applying to jobs and internships is overwhelming and kind of frustrating. Sometimes you really, really want a certain job and you know it's the perfect one for you. Most jobs ask for a cover letter but it's hard to write one and express how much you want the job without sounding crazy. I went through this a lot recently... I kept my cover letters professional but this is what I wish I could have said.

1. I really really really really want the job

Giphy

No, seriously like I need this.

2. I fit the job description literally perfectly

Giphy

For real I fit every requirement except maybe to 10 years of experience wanted.

3. This has been my dream job for as long as I could remember

Giphy

Really, ask my mom.

4. There is more to me than my resume

Giphy

I can also touch my tongue to my nose!

5. I will work really really hard on anything you give me

Giphy

I'll be #dedicated

6. I want this so bad I'm actually okay with just going on coffee runs for you

Giphy

I'm okay with The Devil Wears Prada lifestyle.

7. I genuinely mean it when I say I want to learn

Giphy

I'll learn it all... new slang, a new computer system, a new way to make coffee... ANYTHING.
