So, you're sitting on the deck, inhaling sun, slurpin' down heat for the winter, imagining the day when nanobots rule your body and autonomously administer nutrients and anecdotal stories via wireless networking systems…
What do you think you’re doing?!
You’re supposed to be critiquing and perfecting your students’ internship cover letters!
(…granted, this is slightly hilarious, considering that the cover letter that won you your current position reads like a bumbling Hunter S, Thompson correspondence penned under bath-water bubbles…)
But, really, what are you doing?? Who do you think you are, relaxing on a Sunday afternoon, reading Ray Kurzweil’s recently published book, imagining a future of technologically progressive humans who defy current, biologically-defined needs…??
…when, CLEARLY, there are more pressing matters at hand, such as the reworking of cover letter sentences like:
“I developed up-to-the-minute capabilities of helping foreign people in customers with individual hard work and motivation as if they was Japanese speakers.”
“My enthusiastic try my best motivation is my most high motivation and important to me.”
It’s obvious you have to get it together!! Get off the Sunday sunlight kick, away from the speculative scientific reads, and back to the cover letters!
So, get to it! Stop reading and sun-bathing! Get to writing a brilliant cover letter!
I’m writing in regards to the internships available at you hotel. I think my experience in customer service, English language ability and my love of pleasing others in a multitude of ways will prove to be great contributions to your company.
I’ve served many a foreign guest, in the most needy of times. I can adapt to unique customer desires and am willing to serve your clients in whatever unconventional areas they propose.
I believe the skills mentioned above prove that I would be a great asset to your business. Please contact me to discuss how I can further please you.
Eager Intern Applicant with big-mouth Smile
So…, how about that for a friendly, functional cover letter?
Can I go back to reading science-fiction-echoing, techno, bio-chemical-based predictions of the human race now...?
