After 200 cover letters, here’s what I really want to write:
Dear People I Would Very Much Like To Hire Me,
I am applying for this position because it pays decently, does not require the applicant to know nuclear physics, operate complex machinery or speak a language that is not in my current repertoire. You should hire me because I am dedicated, self-motivated, flexible, capable and because I will spend the next 500 words trying to prove to you that this job is all I have ever hoped for, dreamed of and worked towards from the very second I was born.
