Letter of application

Dear Board of Directors:

Please consider me an applicant for the position of CEO. I think I have all the qualification you are looking for in this position.

My philosophy is that a viable business (huge profit) is dependent on prudent expenditures (cheap labor and shoddy materials) and competitive pricing (collusion and price fixing). I feel that an optimal business location (offshore headquarters), a current knowledge of tax laws (written specifically for your business in exchange for major campaign funds), a modern consumer product (planned obsolescence) and a strong American work ethic (African slave, Chinese factory worker, creative accountant) is what makes a business a success. I have devoted my life to public service as a legislator(got rich through kickbacks and incidentally lost election) and I am now anxious to contribute to the private sector (for really big money and so I can call in favors). If you are interested in an interview, please send a Lear jet to my personal airfield and don't run over my Mexican gardener who is hand-picking ants off the runway. Sincerely, F. Sanity

    Brilliant, Flimsy. You forgot the easy access to prostitutes, tho.

    Leave out the parts in parenthesis, and you'll get a sackload of positive responses.

    PC Mary: I thought I wouldn't mention the perks like backdating stock options until I got the job.

    OPoob: Damn do I miss the franking privilege - helped me defeat the upstarts in elections.

    RJ: Actually the parenthesis are the parts that would make me attractive to them - the rest is the bullshit.

    United: Make sure you mention that I am ruthless while appearing benign - they want that magic show.
