Dear potential employee of the paying type,

You will hire me immediately for I do not take denial softly. If you do not hire me I will be forced to find out your place of residency. I will then proceed to make you quite uncomfortable with my most precious equipment. This visit will cause you to graciously accept my offer. I recommend you avoid unnecessary steps.

Yours truely, John H Mcstabby

Isn't it bad to explicitly consider your weaknesses? I thinks it's better to state what you can do well, and from that implicitly convey the things you may be less good at. Explicitly stating your weaknesses is usually just bad.

Yeah, that is one of the 'wrote it too quick parts'.

 

What you usually want to do is appeal to their empathy while you have the face to face ability to them (weakness questions are a common one I am told)

 

Yeah, that was a very condensed write up. You typically 'flow' into the weakness or answer it when asked through a slightly roundabout way.

Finally, a more realistic showing of how video editing and on the spot filming works with limited resources etc.

Also, why a job application? You're still a student right? Need some extra money, or something?

I'm gonna drop out of university this month.
I completly lost interest in programming and my brain seems to be even more incompatible with mathematics than ever before. It's just not working out that way.
The only thing that I was ever really interested in (and good in) was the medical part of my study.

Lol thanks :D

I have the basic idea of what I have to write but I can't just really put my thoughts into words.
That has always been a problem for me. My brain always wants to write stuff as complex and confusing as possible (only if I write in German....).

That's like over ten times as much as people have to pay here.

Rikkun recommended a solution a while back.

 

Just go to the Netherlands and start digging some holes on their beaches. That gets the blood flowing.

yeah it can get crazy!  lucky enough I got a full ride at my school (University of Oklahoma), got grants to help pay for my apt and a lot of slickdeals.net to pay for everything else.  Grad school is even worse lol.
