Hire me, Santa!

December 12th, 2012 by mklync13

Happy Finals Week, Holy Cross!

Aside from watching 24 hours worth of A Christmas Story and being caught up in the initial glee and eventual boredom of Winter Break, many of you will be applying for internships or jobs during this time away from HC. If you’ve been through the application process already, you know Cover letters mark a critical piece in the internship/job hunt. Along with your resume, cover letters set the tone between you and your potential employer.

So in the spirit of the Christmas (& job hunting) Season, we’ve included a sample cover letter from Elphadora Elf, a college senior looking to apply to Santa’s workshop. Just like us, Elphadora is seeking a job in this rough economy… she’s even willing to relocate to the North Pole! How does your cover letter shape up to hers??

 

Santa, you should hire her!

 

Have a great holiday break, Holy Cross!
