Hiring the unemployable

About once a month, I get an unsolicited resume and cover letter looking for an accounting/bookkeeping job.

Last week, I received this resume (with no cover letter) inside a hand written envelope. I've redacted some of the personal things to allow this person to remain ignorant.

Seriously! This person is looking for a job paying over $25.00/hr. Shit, my first resume in college was about 1000% better than this. No cover letter? 

In addition, she's looking for a tax job during the off season? Who isn't?

We have entered a time when just "showing up" is now a marketable job skill.

I guess I should be impressed that she came up with the $.46 for the stamp.
