"I would like to become a member of the Sundance Marketing team
because I perform best in fast-paced, creative work environments. Product
management appeals to me because I enjoy the challenge of having responsibility for a project from start to fmish. In addition, I spent most of my childhood living in Waltham, and I plan to settle in that area."
Product managers generally have a start-to-finish responsibility, so David's

In the following paragraph, Lauren forgot to balance her enthusiasm for the cause with a statement of interest in a particular job. She said a lot about whales, but nothing about the organization.
Lauren's ill-advised paragraph
"I have been a long-time devotee of whales. Last summer I went on six whale watches and sponsored a neighborhood showing of Save Whale. I am boycotting Norway and have picketed the Hartford Whalers hockey team. As a person who cheered when Captain Ahab got what was coming to him, I'm sure I would finally find a working home with Blubber Is My Brother."
Lauren has shown two potentially negative characteristics, an obsession with a subject and a discomfort with co-workers in the past (" ... fmally find a working home ... "). Lauren reconsidered the matter and redrafted her paragraph:
