The hiring manager not only threatens potential hires, but he’s obnoxious.
As you can tell from the subject line, we’re not going to waste our time with those of you who shotgun your resume and cover letter on a daily basis. Let’s face it, many of us have jobs we want to leave, and we can smell desperation from a mile away (strangely, it’s reminiscent of bacon). So take the time and write an original cover letter if you want to be considered a candidate for a job in our newsroom. Tell me specifically why you want to work with us and why we should consider you for the job.
Desperation smells like bacon? Rodeo clown history hurts a journalism career? This J job ad is weirdly fascinating. bit.ly/Maa5Ti—
