What company? This guy will never live this down. Too many people have seen his real resume and cover letter.
His only professional experience is an intern at Merrill Lynch, which he did from 3/11-8/11.
He now lists tutoring as his current job.

Kids a product of the Facebook, message board, video game generation. Never go outside or socialize with new people. Reminds me of the poster ripping on PhDs. Complete misfit.
Keeping the sunshiners in check since 2000.
Kid has a bright future as a copywriter for an ad agency.
God, investment bankers are douches.
Well, there isn't an industry that has shown the ability to collectively make horrible decisions that will destroy their companies and bring the global economy to its knees in the process more than the investment banking industry. So, why would they care about destroying a young man's career opportunities.
It's nice to see that the government bailout, 0% interest loans and years of quantitative easing have allowed this industry the time for such noble endeavors. You can count me in the group that thinks that these guys are jealous that a college graduate had the gall to write the cover letter that they would want to write for themselves now (but that they wouldn't have the balls to).

I am afraid that the whole world is closer to moral foreclosure.
I would hire this kid in a heartbeat.
Don't hate. Dude can re-fill the printer tray and sort the mail with terrifying efficiency.

The problem is he may possess intelligence, but he is clearly lacking in tact, common sense and self awareness. I didn't have his GPA at that age, but I knew damn well never to send out a cover letter like that. Common sense goes much further in the Real World.
Never thought that Godwin's Law would get invoked in a thread like this, but here we are.

Speaking of egomaniac dipwads...
You think tact, common sense and self awareness are big qualities in investment banking these days?
"Browses tRCMB with terrifying efficiency."
Yes. Practically every professional industry on the planet revolves around knowing how to communicate properly.
I'm not sure saying "excellent with excel" is in your favor.
I read the news today, oh boy .. ..
About a lucky man who made the grade
Anyone else immediately think of Brentwood Spartan?
Michigan State does not and will not run the 3-4 defense.
I'm just saying that I think this cat fits right in with most investment bankers. The fact that they all took this cover letter and decided it was the worst ever, emailed it everywhere and piled on is just another example of the groupthink that permeates this industry in all its douchebaggery.
And you're the authority on what's well written?
Kid is going to be a Tea Party candidate for president in about 4 years.
From the other thread.
I just copied that same line.
I can just see some partner getting freaked the fuck out over how this guy works a copy machine.
group think is everywhere...
Apparently not, since he just got laughed out of the industry before even landing a job.
It's not enough to bash in heads, you have to bash in minds.
True. Now lets start listing the industries where that groupthink creates trillion+ dollar bubbles out of nothing that they ride for billions in profits only to shrug their shoulders with a sheepish grin when it all comes crashing down. Then they get propped up and everyone else gets bent over.
