Don’t Try to Hard to Be Clever
Your cover letter and resume are an introduction. Aim for a conversational, professional tone. Avoid trying to be too edgy. What sounds funny or quirky or special to one person is tacky, cheesy or offensive to someone else.
If you have hobbies or off-the-job skills that apply to the position, by all means share that. For example, if you are applying for a position that requires a great deal of discipline and focus, feel free to mention that you run marathons. If the job will require public speaking, include that you do stand-up comedy in your spare time.
Don’t put the jokes in the cover letter, though. They rarely work.
