I just responded to a job ad that included “good handwriting” as a required job skill. To prove that you possess this skill, it also requires a “handwritten cover letter.”
Is this an ingenious solution to the employer’s screening process, or is this employer mad with power and exploiting the “buyer’s market”? My sore hand suspects the latter, but I’ll defer judgment to the experts.
I am dying to know what this job is. Calligrapher? Engraver? Cake decorator?
I don't want to write my cover letter out by hand, unless it's one of these three jobs.
