Some Outstanding Cover Letters I have received

September 21, 2010

I handle the hiring for my company to a fair bit and come across some outstanding cover letters all time. While some of them irritate me so much that I have to order an extra shot of caffeine others are hilarious enough to take your mind off the work load for a while.

Gonna share some with you. I have made sure there is no reference to anyone living or dead.

I have started a new project called the Indic Dictionary. This will cover popular household words in India and what they are called in various languages.
