Position Wanted

Dear Chairman of the Board:

Before coming to work here--a Fortune 500 company in the commercial real estate industry--I had no previous experience in real estate nor, I must admit, any particular interest in it. Yet I was hired on, and have now worked here for the past three years, including the past six months at the lowest rung of management. My work assignments have been limited to a highly specialized area of the company's operations and my performance evaluations, while positive, have not been exactly of setting-the-world-on-fire caliber.

My qualifications being thus established, I think I'm ready for the next step up the ladder. I want to be promoted to CEO immediately.

I trust that you will faithfully follow the wise and bold example of our country's visionary leader.
