Creative Query Help For Job Opportunity Needed

Hi everyone! I am a beginner with SQL (with the knowledge level of 1 college database class) and am replying to an email about a possible job. One of the job responsibilities is basic/entry level SQL knowledge. I want to nonchalantly throw the syntax of a basic SQL query/statement in the reply email but am having trouble being creative. Best i can come up with is below. Any advice/help would be greatly appreciated! INSERT INTO Employees (LastName, FirstName, PhoneNumber, EmailAddress) VALUES ('Gregory','Greg','696-969-6969', 'Greg.Gregory@Email.Com');

What is the reason for having a creative SQL statement in your reply, unless they have asked you for something specific? Instead of being creative, be honest. Explain that you are going to college and taking SQL. That you are an entry level person, and that you wish to work in this field. Do not try to blind them with lights and mirrors, as they will figure you out quickly. If you are honest your chances will increase over deception.

That was honest, basic is what they asked for and basic is what I listed. And no they didn't ask for something specific, but I try to stand out, it helps remove me from the stacks of followers.
