Dear future employer,
It has come to my attention that I am being dismissed as a possible employee because I am so passionate about the Giving Tee Inkery (GTI). Their fear is that I will be absent minded during the work week because my mind is thinking about my store or I will leave them as soon as the store becomes profitable. Let me assure you, that I am 100% determined to make GTI successful, but I have to have a full-time job to support my dream and fund my living expenses.
The Giving Tee Inkery donates 50% of its' profits to nonprofits and the other 50% goes back into the business cost. If you are doing the math, we do not bring home anything. I am happy that GTI is making a huge difference for people and their causes, so I wouldn't change a thing about the store or our business plan... but I still need to afford to live. That is the part, my potential employees are missing.
My work ethic is unreal. I know this because while working at my previous job, I would leave with my hands literally hurting from typing and clicking all day. While I was in college full-time, I also worked full-time. If I travel to a new country, I do not stop moving, I am walking on average 12 miles a day, just to see everything there is to see in the small amount of time I am there. I guess, the point I am trying to make is, I am a hard worker with extreme detection. I am capable and willing to work 40 hours a week and working for GTI.
At my last interview, the interviewer asked me, "What are you going to do with your baby, once it really gets moving?" And I will go ahead and tell you the same thing. The 100% truth is, I love my company so much and I believe in what it stands for, that I am fine working 80+ hours a week, just to see it succeed.
The only analogy I can think of with hopes that you understand is, GTI is my "child". I'll take care of it when I can and I am excited to see it grow. Because I don't have actual children, I have time to do both, just like any full-time working mother does.
I hope this letter doesn't come off as "too much" or that I am heavily venting. My intention is to let you be aware, that I will be a great employee and I shouldn't be dismissed because I have dreams of making something bigger than myself.
