Wish me luck!

    Awesome, I love it.

    I’ve talked to HR people about having fancy resumes and most of them don’t really like it. They’re much more interested in the content than the presentation.

    I actually like this, but if this went through HR or one of those filtering programs it would probably be skipped for not making any sense.

    I would use this if you know the CV is going straight to a dev ­čĹŹ

    Probably guna get downvoted, but I'll explain.

    If I got handed this is delete the email / throw it out before even reading it, sure its cool but it'd kinda showoff-ey and takes longer than necessary to read.

    If this was a website it would be sick, and I'd love it, but as a professional cover letter it it stands out in a bad way

    (Just my option from hiring people in the past, I'm sure others don't see a problem with it)

    Good luck for the job :)!!

    Um... second to last line, shouldn't it be "new employEr"? @gitoutofhere

    Still, really neat letter!

    If the stereotypes about HR and what regular people believe hackish is are true, this is a genius plan

    Don't forget to tell us what happened to your application!

    That’s pretty nifty, but looks more like a resume than a cover letter. At least my understanding is a cover letter is an actual letter that expands on your resume to the hiring company on why you’re the best fit for the position. I am interested to see how it pans out.

    Hahaha I made a website with a similar theme... Not for a job or anything, I was just bored.

    @hcaz IMHO it's a funny joke. I might even invite for the interview but most likely I will think "childish and unprofessional".

    I hope the HR's know programming!

    Good Luck mate.

    #1 Experience: Representing timespan as string is bad.
    #2 framework has to handle list of string and list of list of string ;)

    But I like it a lot. If it won't go through HR, there are probably more interesting companies around :)
