Email #2
To: Bob Pope
From: Gabrielle Mendes
Subject: Job?
Hey Bob, We talked a couple weeks back at the chamber of commerce event. (I was the one
looking for a summer internship and had a zit on my lip that could have passed for a cold soar.
Lol. Whew. It was not. You’re probably like, “uh.. What?” Maybe that helps you recall, maybe
not. Not completely important, I suppose.
I’d really like to come work for you at your IT business. You seemed like a cool person to work
for, I liked ur striped pants. I’m available to start working on Monday, but I am taking my
driver’s test in June and have to study and go an hour and half away to take it at an easier place
cause I’m not a great driver so I’ll miss a few days. I am also going to the beach with friends for
a week in July. Oh, and my grandmother has bad gas (OMG IT’S TERRIBLE) and sometimes I
have to take her to the doctor.
I’ve attached my resume, it’s the bomb dot com. Let me know if you have a job opening for me.
I can’t wait to play on some computers. If I don’t respond to your email, I’m always on FB,
snapchat or insta!
Peace out,
