What Cover Letters Really Say

As someone who has written countless cover letters on my search for a full-time job in this horrible job market, this Thought Catalog post really hit home, and my funny bone. Because really, how accurate is this?

To Whom It May Concern At Random Possible Employer,

I am writing in response to your job posting on WHATEVER in which you were looking for a junior or entry-level employee. The job description is well suited to my abilities, and, I swear, I love your business more than my own mother. Your company’s efforts to expand into online territory by doing something completely useless and underutilized really piques my interest, and I’d love to be a part of the growth in that area. I’m a child of the web and I know how important it is to the success and future of whatever your industry is, so please let me beg you for a job.

Be sure to read the rest of the cover letter at Thought Catalog. Bravo, Shane Barnes. Bravo.

Is this what your cover letters sound like?
