Emailing Multiple Firms Not A Good IdeaO
Apparently, some Penn undergrad sent this little gem out to several "senior employees" at various shops:
From: [Redacted Penn Undergrad]
Sent: Tuesday, September 27, 2011 4:41 PM
To: Senior employees at Deutsche Bank, Jefferies, KKR, Blackstone [example: Jonathan Gray], most other PE firms you can think of on Wall Street
Subject: University of Pennsylvania Senior interested in Analyst Position upon graduation
My name is [redacted] and I will be graduating from the University of Pennsylvania this May. I am very interested in pursuing a career in investment banking upon graduation and I wanted to know if your firm would be hiring analysts this coming summer. I know you are busy and would appreciate any time you could give me. Thank you in advance and I hope to hear from you soon. My résumé is attached.
This is by far the dumbest job email I've seen in a while. Probably the most epic fail since. The guy doesn't even distinguish between IB and PE. Has anyone else heard anything about this?
