Suzi's Cover Letter:
Dear Chief of Information:
I really want to work in a place called King County, because I’m a total princess! Sometimes when I’m having a bad day, I wear a crown so I can feel pretty and special and cheer myself up!
I am so ready to be your spokesmodel. I will totally be on fleek. Duh!
I see that this opening is competitive. Cool! Like, can I choose how I battle with the other applicants? I’m great at thumb wrestling—and foot wrestling!
Also, all my friends come to be to plan events. I’m really good at themed parties. So when it comes to planning your news conferences, I could have a “Cookies & Baileys” theme; “Brunch & Dunks” theme… or unicorns!
Hope we can salute each other soon!
I'm just your average girl who wants a kick-ass life and... love! If I could be a superhero, that would be AWESOME! I'm currently a "phone actress" looking for a really cool career. Don't get me wrong-- I love giving a hand to dudes who need someone to chat with. Everybody needs somebody! But, my parents keep telling me I need a respectable job. Sigh.
