Creative Cover Letter for GameStop




So it just came to my attention that GameStop is in need of a Creative Copywriter.

In an effort to be considered for the position, here is the cover letter I sent them.

What do you think?



Board, video, card, group, and solo. All of these have been a staple in my life for as long as I can remember. It’s gotten to the point where it’s easy to let myself daydream about actually being in a video game.

Take a look in my inventory and you’ll see all of the missions I’ve completed. My strength contributes to my epic abilities as a creative copywriter who likes to have fun and knock out side quests. My high endurance has allowed me to publish two novels, future fiction adventures (a new genre I made up), and I am in the process of writing the third one as I type (I have the extreme multitasker perk).

GameStop has been my lifeblood since I finally got my first Nintendo when I was a late teen (my parents weren’t too keen about them at the time). I would use my upper-level charisma to earn a ride to FuncoLand when I had enough credits. Fast-forward to today and nothing has really changed. I leveled up to my first house within minutes of a GameStop and it has threatened to bankrupt me to no end (I haven’t found the cheat code for unlimited funds, yet).

I’ve been a living, breathing, late night multi-playing gamer for most of my life. I work well with everyone, thrive on criticism, and want to add more experience points to my real life character by being part of the GameStop team.


If you’d like to press start on a dynamic individual, I’m available for an interview at your earliest convenience.


Thank you so much for your time and I hope to hear from you soon!


Until then,

Chris Traister



I can only hope they find it as clever as I do!
