If you need a good laugh today hit up Deadspin and look at the list of applicants and cover letters for the Wisconsin coaching vacancy. Flat out hilarious. The scene stealer though wsa without question my man Brian D:
Career job title: "Financial Analyst"
Current salary: "$48,000/yr"
Desired salary: "$50,000/yr"
I have no football coaching experience at any level. It would be a huge mistake to hire me for this position.
Thank you for your consideration.
Power move of the century right there Brian D! I mean if I'm Barry Alveraz I give this guy an interview sight unseen. Guy's looking for a modest raise which means you can get him on the cheap by Division 1 football standards and has the guts to tell you he doesn't have a single qualification for the job he's applying for. This has George Costanza 'if every instinct you have is wrong, the opposite must be right' written all over it! At the very least they should give this guy some throwaway job like offensive coordinator or something. Can't imagine Matt America's Hat's qualifications were any better anyway.
PS: We had a guy recently fill out an online questionnaire for our company while he was applying for a job. When it asked for him to 'list a great achievement' of his life he chronicled his childhood quest of getting the high score on the Burger Time arcade game. When asked to assign a number to his motivation with 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest he put 1. Hire this man!
Double PS: 'If you need a good laugh head over to Deadpsin.' Real smart Jon, real smart:
