(or something along those lines. It's kind of hard to explain for me.)
If not, one would be handy.
You are applying your skills in applying for a job. Now, if the job were to make artificial fruit flavors, and you sent in an apply one you made…
Also, what about the opposite situation, where the application process runs directly counter to the job requirements? Such as, shouting that you're a good mime or pick-pocketing to afford law school. And of course, we can't forget the middle case, where the application process has nothing whatsoever to do with the job. Any ideas?
