Cover Letter (Part 6): Another Example

The idea behind sharing this cover letter with you is to show you  that when it comes to creativity:

Don't be sacred to stretch your limits!!!

Given below is the Job Advertisement that appeared on a job board here in New Zealand.

Here is the Cover Letter


  • The candidate has let loose his creativity in this cover letter
  • Advertisement specifically asked for someone who prides themselves with code writing; the candidate wrote a static & dynamic code on this cover letter
  • Observe the greeting message in the code, "I'm an expert software code writer"
  • Of course the text box contents used in the letter could have been better but all in all I would say that this cover letter ends up ticking most of the boxes as discussed in Part 3

Feel free to reach me if you have any questions.
