Hunter S. Thompson’s Job Application

By posted at 11:31 am on October 5, 2010 1

From Hunter S. Thompson’s 1958 job application to the Vancouver Sun: “And don’t think that my arrogance is unintentional: it’s just that I’d rather offend you now than after I started working for you. I didn’t make myself clear to the last man I worked for until after I took the job. It was as if the Marquis de Sade had suddenly found himself working for Billy Graham.”

    That might just be the best job application I’ve ever read. Superb.
