"Will work for free. do double shifts, and detail the HR manager's car
 twice a week on my own time" perhaps?

Seriously, I really have the impression that right now, unless you're
in the top 5% of your specialty and willing to take a 40% pay cut from
your last job and relocate at your own expense, your resume goes
directly to the shredder.  Do not pass Go, do not collect a "Thank you
for applying" letter.
