Okay, so here is the deal. I’m graduating in may. Yes, you heard me right, May, that gives me a month to find a job. So I figured I would help you out, and lay out some of the reasons you should hire me. (and yes I realize that the “want ad’s” aren’t reserved for jobs, but it sounds a lot better than please hire me, I’m begging you, just giving me a chance.”)
First off, let me start by saying, I have had a lot of managing and leadership experience. Not only have I been in charge of 25 campers and 4 staff members, but I also was able to get through an entire summer without any major accidents. And the scar on my leg is barely noticeable.
Secondly, I know my celebrity gossip, entertainment news. I’m on top of the latest fashions. If you have me in your office, people won’t be sneaking a peak at their google readers to check out Perez. I’ll be able to catch them up while I’m finishing the social media plan you asked me to have by noon (which will be ready by 11am).
Third, I’m efficient. I’m on top of my game. If you ask my to have something ready by 3, it will be done by 1. And I will actually tell you when it’s done instead of goofing off and wasting company time.
Fourth, I can do anything. Not only have I had three internships in Public Relations, and two in journalism, but I also have had work experience in an office. I’m excellent with numbers (surprising…I know!), I’m extremely organized, and have experience planning events. If that doesn’t have you looking for the contact button, then know, I am also well versed in twitter, WordPress, tumbler, blogger, use of Facebook and their fan pages, along with most google tools, Dropbox, INdesign, and other photo editors.
Fifth, I can write. A woman once fired her previously hired intern because she liked the way I presented myself in my response to her help wanted ad, and there wasn’t any writing within the job I did. Plus, being new to the world of journalism I am willing to write ANYTHING.
Sixth, I’m pretty.
and Seven, I would be a good fit for your company. Why? Because I can adapt to any environment almost instantly, no matter what the job I will put my all into it. I’m not afraid to stay late, I’m more afraid of not doing the assignment perfectly and having it in on time.
In all serious-ness though, I am desperately seeking a job. Right now, it looks like I will be moving back in with my parents. A fate I still refuse to accept, not that I don’t love my siblings, but three grown children and a preteen…I think I’m going to pass on that one.
My future, although has always seemed so bright, is looking a little bleak. But unlike most of my fellow peers I will not let a little set back in the world of writing deter me from pursing my passion. Instead I will just move where ever there is a job, as long as there is at least some sort of roof (cardboard would work.)
So what are you waiting for, help a college senior out!
