I hope my instructor has a sense of humor

I had to write a fake cover letter for a MS Word project today and this is what I did. She gave us the job position and company name… I made up the rest.

Chandler Bing

Absolute Date Corporation

Red Parkway Avenue

Boston, MA 48232 

Dear Mr. Bing

I am writing in response to the job opportunity posted for an Excel data entry and analyses in the Boston News on April 9th, 2010. I have many years of experience using Excel, including data entry, creating formulas, and if/then functions and my self-motivating work ethic is a good match for  your company mission, ‘Numbers are the only sure thing in life.’

 I have received both my Associates and Bachelors degrees in Business Management and earned the 2008 Excel award. I am goal-oriented and work well under time requirements. I arranged and maintained all financial statements for my previous employer, Enron Corporation. I believe I was a great asset to their company and will be one to yours as well. 

Thank you for your time. I look forward to having more correspondence with you in the future. I can be reached at xxx-xxx-xxxx
