It has come to my attention, after a recent series of unfortunate events, that the cause of our problems could be a lack of covering. Having removed ourselves from the umbrella of protection, we are now vulnerable to random attacks of misfortune.
In order to rectify this situation, we are going to consider possible candidates for this position.
We know several people who would be more than happy to fill this role; however their over-enthusiasm for the position concerns us.
If you believe that you may be qualified for this position, please describe what you have to offer in this regard. We are willing to consider all serious applicants.
