To Whom it May Concern:
I am a recent graduate of a four-year university that you’ve probably never heard of. I’d tell you which one, but the crippling student loans that I am currently buried under physically disable me from uttering the name of my Alma Mater. I will say, however, that during my time here, I focused my efforts on studying the elusive art of procrastination, which led me to a last-minute decision to seek out a degree in the esteemed Communication Arts. I recently came across your Craigslist post seeking a well-tendered Customer Service Associate, and, though I wouldn’t necessarily ENJOY this position, I really like the idea of living the type of financially stable life suggested by the listed salary range, and therefore, would like to be considered for this position.
In short, I am a highly intelligent, quasi-confident, yet fully-functioning human being with the ability to converse with others with minimal anxiety. I believe that my patience for those who lack basic common sense and my ability to complete menial tasks will make me a perfect fit for your Customer Service team. Please feel free to contact me via email to schedule an interview. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
