Education, education, education.

A friend of mine, who's in a senior position at a major media company, has just sent this on to me. It's supposed to be a job application:
Hi [over-familiar Christian name with diminutive],
You hiring at [name of major media company]? I'm ex-economic times and Cambridge. If there are any openings, do tell.
Kind regards,
[Over-chummy Christian name withheld to spare blushes].
As he said to me, "could it be that every single one of the 22 words are, in their own unique way, totally wrong?"
