I’ll keep a running set of cover letter examples in this post.
Cold call to the universe
Q: After reading Cover Letter Flowchart, a friend joked about the “Motivation - Desperation; Skills - No” title I’d written:
“Is this me but in life in general? 😅”
A: It looks like time for a cold-call letter to someone who hasn’t yet posted an opportunity! I took a stab at one based on what I knew from the preceding question and my knowledge that this friend is making a career in an industry that could potentially promise great returns, but geographically outside of traditional “hub” locations for that industry.

To whom it may concern:
By now, we’re all far too familiar with the challenges presented by global supply chain issues. I have excess warehouse and finishing capacity for good luck and would like to offer you a unique partnership opportunity.
With over 20 years of experience in the LIFE field, specializing in Making Lemonade Out Of Lemons, I have proven experience manufacturing raw good luck into life improvements. By recycling bad-luck scrap material sanded off in the process into jokes, I run a zero-waste operation, with my own supply chains into many communities, and am able to increase your efficiency at distributing joy into the world.
I currently have triple my usual warehouse space to store and process good luck, which should help clear the outbound backlog at your own docks. My calendar is wide open early next week to explore logistics for this exciting opportunity to partner and exceed both of our quarterly goals. You can reach me at (123) 456-7890 and
[email protected]. I look forward to speaking with you.
