Hire Me, Dumbass!   (book)

Hire Me, Dumbass!: Serious Inquiries Only
Hire Me, Dumbass!: Serious Inquiries Only

Quotes from the publisher's description of the book:
Dear Pepsi Human Resource Department,
I love Coke...

Dear Playboy Human Resource Department,
Why do I want to work at Playboy? Two words: naked women...

Dear Solomon Smith Barney's Human Resources Department,
You are no doubt looking for candidates with intelligence, dedication, ambition and drive. That's great, but what about the rest of us...

Dear UPS Human Resources Manager,
You are probably wondering why this letter was sent via Federal Express...

Dear Fruit of the Loom Human Resources Manager,
I go through underwear like crazy. It's gotten so bad I just throw them away after each use. That stated, I would like to be considered for a key marketing position within your organization...
