College Kid Writes Brutally Honest Cover & Wall Street Loves It

A cover letter from a college kid looking for a summer internship on Wall Street is getting some love online, because of his brutally honest.

It’s about how he’s from an ‘average’ university, but is smart, studying finance, and will work hard. Apparently he sent it to the head of an investment bank he met randomly a couple years ago.

In the letter, the kid writes, ‘I won’t waste your time inflating my credentials, throwing around exaggerated job titles, or feeding you a line of crapp about how my past experiences and skill set align perfectly for an investment banking internship.’ Yes he wrote crapp.

He also throws in some shameless groveling; ‘I have no qualms about fetching coffee, shining shoes or picking up laundry, and will work for next to nothing.’

Check out the cover letter below.  You can also see a larger version at the Business Insider.

The guy he sent it to liked it so much, he forwarded it to an email list of other Wall Street bankers, and apparently they loved it too. One of them wrote, ‘I wouldn’t be surprised if this guy gets at least a call from every bank out there.’ Another wrote ‘This might be the best cover letter I’ve ever received.’  Read the responses at the Business Insider.

No word on whether the kid got an internship yet.
