Today, I applied for a new job. The opening line of my cover letter went like this:
“Dear Hiring Manager,
I’m pleased to discover an opening for the position of Marketing Manager with Plentyoffish. As I am perpetually single, I strongly believe I have what it takes to fit in with Plentyoffish.com’s core values, as it is hardly long before I find myself a customer once again; fishing for a relationship on POF.com.”
I figure the pathetic plea of my opening line will either get my resume tossed, or a pity interview. I’m really hoping for the latter.
