In order to give them a truly amazing hire option, I decided to send over my resume.
Coming up with the perfect resume is like completing a work of art, putting the finishing touch on a five star meal, or finding the perfect word to complete your poem. It is not for the light of heart. I know this process can be daunting for many, and so I am here to give you a nearly perfect example of a brilliant resume:
Hello. I am applying for the marketing/communication specialist position. I am a super fun, spiritual person with a super positive outlook on life!!!
As a family studies major I don’t actually have any experience in marketing, but I have a ton of communication skills. We discuss communication tactics in many of my classes and I know how to communicate clearly. I have been a Relief Society president for about a month and a half now so I guess you could say I have really good experience with people. People love me. I also know how to use Microsoft word cause I write papers for my classes. I have a blog and a Facebook and I also have an account with twitter and like 24 followers so that’s a pretty good representation of how much I get social media. I grew up in this generation, so I think that alone says a lot about how well I would do at this job. I have also taken a few classes from the editing minor. I once wrote a children’s story about Cinderella, but instead of a human she was a snake and instead of her shoe she shed a layer of skin. I think this demonstrates my creativity and shows that I can think outside the box. I once spent my enitre Thanksgiving break at a soup kitchen so I really love service. I have never served the BYU community specifically but, as mentioned before, I am a relief society president so service comes naturally to me. I love going to the dinosaur museum at Thanksgiving Point and playing in the sand pit, and I love when my professors use visual aids in classes, I think it’s really important to remember that everyone has a different learning style. Mine is a hands-on learning style, so I am definitely ready for that experience.
I can start as early as today but I need to let you know that I will be taking two weeks off at Christmas and probably week off at Thanksgiving and every major or minor holiday.
The application asked for a writing sample to be attached. I don’t think that one sample can properly demonstrate my skills, so I am directing you to my blog: www.thatsadie.com. The title of my blog is “Indecisive,” but don’t let that fool you. When it comes to the work field, I am very decisive and able to commit. I will not graduate for another year so I have longevity covered.
Thank you for your time,
. . . But in all seriousness. If you think you may be qualified for this job shoot me an email and I will get you in touch with the right people. It will be the best thing that has ever happened to you.
I heard back about the position. Here is an excerpt from the rejection email:
Thank you for applying for the marketing/communications position. We regret to inform you that we are unable to offer you an employment position at this time seeing as you already work here . . .
Rejection hurts, but at least we know it was because I am already employed. Silver lining.
