so, this is something i wrote out of my own sarcastic mean spiritedness… word of advice: think twice before asking me to help you with your resume…

To Whom It May Concern:

I’m looking for a job that suits my needs. I want a job that will fulfill me, define me, and leave me satisfied and content with my life. (Even in my thirties, I hold onto the American ideal that these qualities can be provided by having the right occupation). I want a job that fits in my schedule and is flexible. If it’s not convenient, then it must not be the right job for me.

I’m not entirely sure what the job you have available will entail, or even if I meet all the qualifications. I’m just certain that it must be better than my current position. At least there’s probably less to complain about. It’s not that I mind starting at the bottom and working my way up, but I’ve been there for three whole months and I’m not a store manager yet. How long do they expect me to wait? Anyway, I really can’t stand my current job.

Thank you for considering my application. I’ve attached my resume for your review. As you can tell, my work history includes a wide variety of short-term occupational commitments. I hope to hear from you soon; I think your job will complete me.

so then i got to thinking about this little cover letter… and i realized that many a church-folk look for the same things out of their church… as if going to church is for your benefit alone… it’s too bad…

peace… love… bdg…
