Wall Street Bosses Hail Best Application Letter

Shockingly candid: An undergraduate finance student surprised the investment banking community by sending a cover letter to a boutique bank in which he admits that he comes from an average college and has no special skills

When it comes to cover letters, self-aggrandizement is the prevailing attitude among young, ambitious job seekers, but one applicant bucked the trend, going instead for brutal, unflinching honesty.

An undergraduate finance student penned a refreshingly sincere cover letter this week asking for an internship at a boutique investment bank on Wall Street.

Rather than inflating his qualifications and bragging about his grades or past job experiences, the humble applicant simply stated his case and matter-of-factly asked for a position.
