The Resume I have Always Wanted to Write

To whom it concerns,
I submit my name before you I hope of securing employment with your organization. As the baby boomer generation grows older, the job market is opening up like almost never before. Soon corporations will be begging for new, young employees to fill the gaps of a rapidly aging, and therefore retiring, generation. I choose to make myself available to you now in an effort to show both gumption and proactivity that your company appreciates, or will soon appreciate as a new, less cultured workforce begins to thrust themselves into the workforce.
Having been pursuing education for the past eighteen years of my life I do not have much to offer in terms of experience, either in this particular field, or any that requires any level of real responsibility for that matter. From working four years in retail I do have rudimentary people skills, can count to ten, can stay up past ten pm, can wake up before six am, and have experience in wearing uncomfortable uniforms. I am well versed in working for incompetent managers and supervisors. I have experience helping multiple unreasonable people when I’m not technically on the clock. I am used to being asked at the last minute to come in early and stay late, but if I need to leave thirty minutes early then I am asking for the world to revolve around me
                  Having graduated high school, and being on the verge of completing college I am able to coherently articulate myself in both spoken and written word. I am used to making and maintaining schedules. Most of all I am used to working. Beyond working I am able to get the job done. If it were possible to be employed based solely on being able to finish the job, despite inadequate training, assistance from coworkers, motivation, job satisfaction, inadequate materials, sickness, and multiple other responsibilities such as eating, sleeping, and breathing, then I would be on the list of most successful people who still have to work for a living.
                In closing I am the most capable, if not qualified by means of education, training, or experience, for employment with your organization. I am the go to guy, the one that everyone looks to for help. I get shit done.
With Best Regards,
Your newest (and best) employee
