Open Cover letter
Hello, if you have made your way here the chances are I have handed you my business card and asked for you to look at my resume. I appreciate your curiosity, like you my interest for the new outweighed my patience for old inefficiencies. Acquiring work on a vertical career model also never seemed all that interesting to me. With this in mind I set out from the time I was young to discover the best industries and the best jobs within those industries. This travel through accounting, sales, marketing, logistics, manufacturing, hospitality, food service and retail has allowed me to determined that the best jobs are the ones with the greatest work diversity and unlimited potential. An idea is one such thing with unlimited potential, I am another, and you are a third. Amongst my time working through these jobs I got a few modest raises, some success recognition and two diplomas. One of these diplomas is in Accounting and the second in Hospitality Management, both further adding to my awareness of all things business. Cost efficiency and customer service benchmarked current market leaders.
Now if my experience does not interest you, let me give you a small hint into my vision of the future. In my version of societies future individuals will work towards identifying all the best practices through real world experience, and then offer all of the best ideas to other people for free. It is my hope to bring your business up; as opposed to setting up a rival business across the street that makes us all less successful. The truth is that the world only has so many resources, and consumers only need so much stuff. Soon a point will be reached where people will realise that we no longer need new things, and will adapt to these market changes. In the mean time, please think about what my long term diligence with my own goals can do when I apply this same seriousness to your wants and needs.
In closing I want it to be made clear I am nothing but another man with a big heart, a hard work ethic, a serious mind, and a relentless desire to make your day. Please let me show you how I can make your world a little brighter, while you make my world a little brighter.
