Living Life on a Whim: Getting Creative with Cover Letters

Recently, I was dared by a friend to create what we’re going to call a “non-traditional” resume. I’ve been on the job hunt for a while now, and through our discussion we decided that perhaps it’s time to start getting creative – start putting a little more “me” into these applications. There were jokes about creating a Buzzfeed-style resume, highlighting my more fun skills and experience.

Well, what started as a joke has now come to fruition in the form of a Buzzfeed-style cover letter. If you’d have asked me a month ago whether I’d ever submit something like this, let alone let it go live on the internet, I’d have told you absolutely not. But, the point has been made…what do I have to lose?

So, here it is for your viewing pleasure. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed making it!
