The worst internship candidate email. Ever.


I just received an email from a potential intern candidate. Below is her email, resume and photo. Enjoy.
Greetings, my name is Meagan D. I am currently obtaining my BA degree in Mass Communication/ Journalism. I live for journalism and would love the oppurtunity to work for your establishment I have attached a short Resume, aswell as a photo. You might find people with more experience, but no one with the passion and drive that I have for the feild of jornalism, and the desire to be great in my field, and be a good representative of the company that I serve.
Thanks in advance
