Reply to Mr. Noland


Mr Noland,

Thank you for taking the time to review my resume. I would have to agree with you that I would make a great fit for the Financial Services Representative position you are looking to fill.

Ever since I was a puppy I have been interested in the Financial Services Industry. In an effort to better understand money I have even gone so far as to eat several dollar bills. I can tell you this they don’t taste like chicken but are much better than matches. I have also spent considerable time working on my own personal finances.

During my impetuous youth I ran into a slight issue where I chewed through a seatbelt. At the time I did this I had no income and no prospects for income. I was pretty much relying on my A to put food in my bowl twice a day. This incident opened my eyes and since then I have accomplished all that you see on my resume. I am very proud of the fact that I have been able to pay off my seatbelt debt and in fact have exponentially increase my personal net worth since the time of the incident. This incident was a true turning point in my life

Unfortunately I have been unable to call Mary McHugh, as you suggested to schedule an interview. As you are most likely aware dogs do not have opposable thumbs so we can’t dial phones unless they have really big keypads. I have a giant keypad phone on order but it won’t be here for a few days. Don’t worry though if part of this job requires me to dial a phone I will bring the giant keypad phone I just ordered to work with me. I know you are taking a chance on me so I don’t want to be treated any different than any other employee. I would not think of asking you to provide special office equipment for me.

I am certainly looking forward to meeting you and discussing career opportunities in your office. Currently my A works 8-5pm which leaves me without a car. I did ask him if he would mind taking a day off to drive me to the interview. Unfortunately he told me that unless I started to play fetch with him he would not take the time off to drive me. Obviously the easy thing for me to do would be to play fetch but that game is so demeaning I just won’t do it and I don’t think you would want to hire a dog that would play fetch anyway.

Would it be possible to do an interview after 6:30pm? Or even better you could come to my house and we could do the interview there. I am home all day every day except Wednesday’s when I go to Doggy Day Care, which ever day works best for you is fine with me. I will be able to afford a car or at least afford to pay the Doggie Day Care bus lady to drive me to work once I get the job but for now I am stuck without transportation.

Thanks again for this great opportunity. I am chasing my tail in excitement. I really think being a Financial Services Representative will be a great opportunity for me and I am sure I will be an asset to your organization.

I am enclosing a picture with this email so you will be able to recognize me when we meet. If I have learned anything in business it is being able to recognize and associate a name with the face you are meeting goes a long way towards building a successful relationship


Sincerely,

Stephen TheDog
Future Financial Services Representative
Strategic Financial Partners

P.S. Would is be possible to get an autographed photo.

Judging from my experience interviewing people, Mr. Noland will probably be very impressed that you are wearing a tie. Good choice!

I hope your A has taught you how how to give a good handshake. Another great first impression opportunity!

I hope the interview goes okay Stephen. I, myself, have eaten a 20 dollar bill and know a little something about money or, the lack thereof, hee, hee.

Again, best of luck to you, Spirit the wolfdog from Wolfdog Den.
