    Dear Future Boss (lets just say Current Boss)

    I am the bestest Graphic Designer in the world (don't worry you can afford my wages). I design graphics like erm....words can't describe them.

    I'm coming with packed lunch to office tomorrow anyway. Thanks for giving me the job. :-)

    Yours in love forever and ever,

    The ideas on here are probably better to be fair. I don't get excited about receiving standard letters and CV's, especially when these people are applying for creative jobs.

    Get creative - send a USB stick with preloaded data and links to your website.

    To whom it may concern,

    Hi, I'm Peter. I want to do, well, something. I haven't really decided what yet. Actually, I don't want to do it, I just want to think about it and get someone else to do it for me, such is my way in work as in forums, as in life.

    yours, peter

    sending out expensive USB sticks to all and sundry??

    We're not the ones who can't write a letter!!

    sending out expensive USB sticks to all and sundry??



    You have only mentioned applying for 1 job, which you obviously don't want badly enough to spend a few quid on a USB stick recommended by someone who works in this business.

    Cover letter is in many ways more important than the cv. The cover letter has to mention the specifics about the job, why you want it, why you would be good at it, how your experience is relevant. Etc. The cv is just your work history really, not specifically relevant to the job, unless you redo it.

    Anyway, calling other people useless is a bit rich coming from someone who doesn't know what a cover letter is and.doesn't know how Google works.

    No. I didn't mention anything about expensive ones did I. We buy USBs at about £3 direct from the far east. If you want to show some initiative, buy 50 units through a promotional merchandise site (sorry, I can't self promote otherwise I would) with FREE preloaded data and a one colour print on there saying "Remember me? " along with your details.

    If you don't get a call straight away, the USB will no doubt be used within the business anyway so you may get a call later on.

    Or you can send a letter.

    I know what I'd look at.
