... and picking stuff up

I mean, I'm not jettisoning EVERYTHING.

I've learned some important stuff that maybe I shouldn't jettison. Do you know how important it is to shake the printer toner? I do. What about using DEET? If you're in a third-world country, use DEET. (Or if you work in advertising.)

This, my response to a request for a brief cover letter. My resume followed, though I'm thinking of bulking this page up, making it more informative, and skipping the formal resume altogether.

oh man. you must mystify and delight prospective employers. 72andsunny must be feeling pretty dumb for turning a blind eye to your talents.

Found you via Tantek's Tweet - how ingenious. I hope you get whatever job suits your fancy. If I had one to offer, you'd have it!

I loved it too! Just a tip - your phone number is easily visible there, so you may want to consider removing that before posting online.

Idea - can you comment on this post when you get the result back from the job? I'm very curious to know how a cover letter like this fares :) Thanks!

very cool katie!

(btw the science nerd in my must say that DEET is an organic compound)

Katie O'Shea said...

Changed!

bodhi said...

@David Hahaha, nice work with the eye for detail!

Oh man, if I received this cover letter, I'd want to me your sister!

This is very pretty, and hilarious.

bakinthebacon said...

Well, not really. I hear she is a source of constant embarrassment.

And she can't type.

Katie O'Shea said...

Don't you go talking smack about my sister! (That you, D?)

And thank you!
