Over at Capulet, we get a few job-related enquiries each month. Most of them are random resume submissions. Yesterday, I received the most original employment query that I’ve seen in a long time. With Lori’s permission, I’m reposting it here:
Which is why you need someone like me working for you. I’m an administrative and planning genious. I have a resume and references to this effect, but your little text box here doesn’t allow me the needed space for that. I love the kind of work your company does, I love your location, and if I have to work “for the man” being a part of the projects you create and dealing with the kind of clients you have is something that I would love to be a part of.
I’ve been a lot of things in my adult life, and finding the right kind of enviroment to use my skills to the fullest is difficult. Your company seems to be the right balance. I’m an event planner, researcher, information and referral resource person, legal assistant, fundraiser, receptionist, travel and itinerary organizational goddess, and fun at parties.
I want to talk with you, just once. I will try to make myself indespensible to you and your company.
Now that’s a purple cow (er, sorry about that) of a job enquiry. Of course, we’re in Malta, so we can’t really retain her services at the moment.
If you’re in need of such a person, feel free to drop me an email and I’ll put you in touch with Lori.
