From a generic cover letter of a person who claims to be a “walking think tank”:

I currently have a job, which pays well, but does not allow me to allow my creativity to flourish. So here, I pose an offer. If you represent a company that can recognize an innovative mind with unlimited potential for improving your company, please contact me immediately.

An interesting approach that makes them stand out. Unfortunately, it does so by sounding quite arrogant. “…unlimited potential for improving your company” speaks in what I term the infinitive condescension. My immediate suspicion is that this person is more concerned about meeting their own needs as opposed to the company’s needs.

One word: assessment.
