It Pays To Be Honest!

It Pays To Be Honest!

Photo is screenshot from this video on how to write a cover letter:

A cover letter from a college kid looking for a summer internship on Wall Street is getting some love online, because he was honest in it. 

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."

"The truth is I have no unbelievably special skills or genius eccentricities, but I do have a near perfect GPA and will work hard for you."

"I have no qualms about fetching coffee, shining shoes or picking up laundry, and will work for next to nothing."

 

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.

 

No word on whether the kid got an internship yet.
