Dear Nitrous Dioxide,
I am writing to express my interest in the position of steel supplier for your latest project: the giant intergalactic parking lot that you plan to turn Earth into. You may be somewhat confused about the form of this cover letter, given it is not being sent directly to you, but instead being posted on a random site on the Internet, a thing we use on Earth to communicate across great distances. I did not know how to get a letter to you, as I don’t know where you are in the cosmos. Furthermore, we don’t have a form of intergalactic travel on Earth yet.
I believe I would make a powerful asset to your team, as I have been aspiring to become a steel fabricator around Melbourne for many years now. Whatever it is you need, I will be able to supply it. I also have professional experience in architecture, working as an intern with Australia’s best builders before deciding a career with metal was better for me. Although that was many years ago, the experience I gained in that job was simply invaluable, and I will be able to put it to good use in your employ.
While I personally do not agree with your project, instead believing the Earth should remain as is, I have the professionalism to look past that and put all my effort into building the parking lot you so desire, should you choose to go forward with it. Of all the metal suppliers for the Melbourne area, you will find none more professional than I. That is why you should choose me, and no other. I will not let you down.
If you’d like to know more about my work, feel free to respond in a comment to this blog post. Otherwise, I am available on Tuesdays and Thursdays for an interview should you wish to beam me up to your spaceship.
I hope this post finds you well.
Lots of love,
