Dear Goliathus Society

It is with great delight that I respectfully submit this cover letter in application for the open position as advertised. I truly believe that I would be the best candidate, as I have many and varied talents.

The ad was rather vague as to the job duties, just something about gnomes. Please know I am not at all prejudiced against little people.

I was unable to find any information about your society.  However, I discovered that a goliathus is a giant beetle! I find that a little alarming, as I would hope that my job would not involve mucking out beetle stalls, or grooming the disgusting creatures. What does beetle dung look like, anyway? I certainly hope I would not have to find out!

Since 2008, I have gone on many adventures that have given me a unique set of skills that, quite frankly are completely useless. I have searched for missing persons, rescued a jungle princess, and found the Zodiac Killer. I have gone scuba diving, time traveled, and investigated haunted carnivals, hotels, and demon-infested circuses. I’ve conducted chemistry experiments, and I have found my way out of a labyrinth. I’ve explored places made entirely out of candy, gone geocaching, and I’ve collected instruments. I’ve chased aliens, ghosts, monsters, and explored an asylum.

I believe my past experience will help you see that I am the ideal candidate for your position.

I look forward to speaking with you in an interview.

Sincerely,
Suzanne Piers
