Dear Jerkbag

Things that go viral on Wall Street are usually hilarious. Or cause for termination.

However, the thing currently going viral on Wall Street is an especially blunt cover letter. In it, a kid looking for an internship between his BA and Masters programs writes, “I won’t waste your time with credentials, throwing around exaggerated job titles, or feeding you a line of crapp [sic] 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.”

He’ll probably get the job, and we’ll probably see a new trend in “blunt” cover letters.
