Business Communication

Cover letters from hell

Along with every résumé we get comes a cover letter. Composing one seems to have a Difficulty Rating of 11, since that’s where we find the most tortured prose ever set to paper. For example: “I expect the position to pay commissary to that of its value, as well as to the performance completed.”

Or, decode this:

“It is my desire to develop and generate the revolving scheme to filter to the consuming public in.”

Yes, there is more where that came from.
