My Zombie Apocalypse Resume


April 5, 2011

Dear Ms. (REDACTED),

Please find below my resume for position of medic, farmer, and chef in your renegade Zombie consortium.

I have reviewed your criteria carefully, and I believe I would be an asset to any compound that offered me a place. I began learning post-apocalyptic appropriate life skills long before the outbreak of the Zombie virus, and have practical experience as well as theoretical knowledge.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.
