The following text is my 2nd cover letter to Mr. X for the summer job of my dreams. This cover letter was sent as the body of an e-mail to Mr. X with my original cover letter and resume attached. The subject line read “Hello again, again.” I still have yet to hear anything but am already working on March’s letter.
For those of you who have no idea what I am writing about, check out the post from February 2nd.

Dear Mr. X,
Thank you for ignoring my last letter as it has given me the opportunity to write you again! As you may have guessed from last month’s resume and cover letter and the return address above, my name is still Sassy Librarian. It seems as though you need someone to help with your correspondence since you are at least 5 weeks behind! Do not fear, I am still interested in working for you this summer. This letter is just to remind you about the last letter I sent reminding you how of we…
”met in Boston Thanksgiving weekend; I talked to you about working for you in the summer of 2011. You were very nice and humored me, thank you. This letter and resume are to let you know that I’m serious. I would love to work for you this summer.”
Perhaps you don’t quite remember me as “Sassy Librarian” since you thought my name was “Amy,” until I corrected you. But since I am short and you are quite tall, you may not have heard me, being that I’m so low to the ground relative to you (I think I come up to your sternum.) That written, no hard feelings, you may call me “Amy” if you wish.
My skills still include: exceptional written and oral communication; excellent organizational skills; work well with colleagues as well as independently; driven; persistent; great research skills, learn quickly; listen and ask questions; experience working with people who have strong personalities; hard worker; fun and funny.
My background checks to work in public schools in Massachusetts and Maine still stand. Nothing has been revoked. Please feel free to conduct a background check of your own. (Google will not work in this instance, there are far too many women in the world named “Sassy Librarian” to find me.)
I will STILL work for one week for free. Yes, you read that correctly, Free, FREE. If I don’t work out or if I don’t mesh well with the organization, I’ll ship my own ass back to New England. (Seriously, I will leave and you will never hear from me again.) If I do work out, and you want to hire me for the summer, you don’t even have to pay me that much–just a little something to put in the bank.
I thank you for having taken the time to read this, if you have (Again, may you stub your toe if you haven’t)
Happy Valentine’s Day!
I trust this finds you well.
