Re: Application for position of Director / Champlain-Lennoxville
Dear Selection Commmittee:
Attached please find my resume that I wish to submit for the position of Director for Champlain Regional College – Lennoxville. Although my experience is primarily in Finance, I feel I possess critical skills and key experience that will prove to you I am more than qualified as a candidate for this position.
I have a twenty-five year history with Champlain College and the surrounding community of Lennoxville. As well, I maintain many strong relationships with the neighboring town of Sherbrooke, and have worked hard in the last two years at becoming bilingual. In addition I am on a first name basis with many of the current administration including my soon-to-be supervisor, Gerald Cuttting, Len Davis, and outgoing Director, Bertrand Daigneault. In fact, I believe I once met one of your first Campus Directors, Bill Matson, who once referred to my sister as a runaway-lesbian-druggy – which was his loving way of saying she wasn’t worth looking for. Of course there is that recent matter of Bernie Daigneault accusing me of making “gratuitous, unfounded and untruthful attacks on (the School’s) sterling reputation “, but I’m sure we can all put that behind us.
I have reviewed the Functions you have outlined for the incoming director; after reading my resume I’m sure you will agree I am ably qualified to carry out these duties. In addition, I know how much you value subterfuge; especially sweeping problems under the rug when they involve the affairs of pesky students. Although at present I do not possess these abilities, I will work hard under your tutelage to develop this special skill set.
Undoubtedly you will have a lot of questions, and most of those can be covered in the interview. Before we get to that, there is one request that I have for you.
If you would publicly apologize for your behavior with regard to the events surrounding the disappearance and murder of my sister, Theresa Allore, and admit that your comments and actions over the past 25 years – particularly your unfounded attempts to gratuitously
and untruthfully discredit her reputation – were base, hurtful and unwarranted; then I’m sure we can eliminate the interview and get right down to the drug screen and offer letter.
I thank you for your time and consideration and I look forward to hearing from you
