Wrote wrong name AND date on cover letter, but still got the interview???
Ok, so I was reviewing my upcoming interviews, and looking over what I sent them to make sure I have everything they could ask me covered. So I look at the cover letter I sent to Citigroup. First thing I see, its dated January 2006! Next, I see that I actually sent the WRONG cover letter to them, namely I sent the cover letter that I was supposed to send to UBS. So the name of the company/internship postion that I refer to throughout the cover letter are for the wrong company.
Yet I got the interview for Citigroup. Is this a sick joke on their part to fuck with me for half an hour, or do they simply not read cover letters, even though they were the ones that requested a cover letter?
Also, do you think this is going to bite me in the ass later, and if so, how serious? For example, lets say that they just didn't read my cover letter. And I interview, do ok, and get second rounds. Now the guy who does second rounds reads my cover letter. Is he going to cancel the interview right then and there for such a retarded mistake? How serious is fucking up your cover letters?
