A Sweet Update

I continue to look for work, preferably in sports journalism, although I am open to other opportunities. In fact, one such opportunity has just opened up, as Candy Funhouse is advertising for a part-time, remote “candyologist.”

“Candidates should have enthusiasm and eagerness to try confectionary products. We are looking for honest and objective opinions on the products that will be taste tested. Candidates will be responsible for tasting and reviewing from the 3000 products we currently carry,” says the job description.

Yeah, I can do that.

So I’m hoping my cover letter catches their attention.


To Mr. Wonka and staff:

I enjoy playing Candy Land, dessert is my favorite meal, and Def Leppard’s “Pour Some Sugar On Me” is featured in every single one of my playlists. Oh, and I believe Valentine’s Day is the best holiday, because chocolate goes on sale the next morning.

That is why I am submitting my application for the position of candyologist.

You will benefit from the fact that in addition to a very sweet tooth and a fairly high metabolism, I have spent my entire career in communications, including at (614) Media, which focuses mostly on food and entertainment news and features.

This job is also my cup of sweet tea because I am a very inquisitive person. Indeed, it’s why I chose to enter the field of communications in the first place. You learn about the world by interacting with it, and communication is the key ingredient to making that happen. Therefore, I will bring to this position a passion for learning about new confections and candies from around the world.

My resume only gives you a taste of what I am capable of, however, so I thank you in advance for an opportunity to discuss the position with you at your convenience…
