Covering Letter for a job i'm not sure I want
Hive mind thoughts please
I’m applying for a job I don’t really know I want. I’m of two minds about it. But its interesting and in a field that I’m interested in, but I’m just aware that this company might not be for me, and I might not be for them. It may be that it’s a great match. I like applying for job slike this as there’s no pressure.
So I want to convey this in a simple open semiformal way at the end of the covering letter, as I semi know some of he people. In the letter I say generally what I have to offer and what I’m looking for (but is not sycophantic) , and CV is taylored to the position.
Should I even bother or does it go without saying/come off as snooty? Its not a you’re not good enough thing, just a we might not be right for each but I’d like to know more kind of thing.

Yeah, not being offhand, but probably not possible to get over what I want to – Its just my overwhelming instinct to be honest. Final sentence rewritten as the “look forward to meeting you etc”. What’s in the back of my mind is if say, I got offered it, and turned it down, something I REALLY wanted may comes up in the future, and I’ve already made out I really want something then changed my mind.Posted 4 years agopiemonsterMember

This has no place in any job I’ve ever applied for.
Depends on the circumstances of course. But if I was honest to the question “why do you want this job” (in whatever deeply irritating manner they phrase it)
I’d answer with this “job innit”
Which is unlikely to get me a job.Posted 4 years ago
