Best of 2013: The Worst Cover Letter Ever Written (Literally)
2013 is coming to a wrap! To say good-bye to one seriously great year, we’re counting down to New Year’s with the top 13 articles of 2013. You loved them the first time, so here they are again—we hope you enjoy!
Here at The Muse, we're fans of unconventional cover letters—doing something a little different that sets you apart from other applicants and lets your personality shine through.
As long as, you know, it's done well.
We've spent our morning cringing after being forwarded the World's Worst Cover Letter (as we've officially dubbed it) and couldn't resist sharing it with you as an example of what you should never, ever do. Please.
And, fair warning: If you do send in something like this, the hiring manager might just pass it along to us.
