unnecessary unnecessary unnecessay. hopefully that was just a rough draft printed out and he/she realized how unnecessary most of those sentences were to include... or maybe you've got him/her underestimated and it was supposed to be satirical!

Who says "dear recruiter"? What, they couldn't take the time to find out the person's name? Isn't that mistake #1 right there?

Obviously this author does not try hard enough to avoid unnecessary things, such as this paper.

Well "Dear Sir or Madam" is now quaint, but yeah "Dear Recruiter" just makes me think about joining the Army. I usually do "___company-name___ Representative," (no dear). It ain't pretty, but I've yet to find something better (sometimes you can't find names at large corporations).

I am forced to seriously consider whether my life will ever be complete without meeting the author of the necessity paper and thanking him for ten minutes of pure hysterical laughter.
