WSO Ranking On Resume???

I'm trying to add some achievements to my resume as it is looking a little weak. Over the past several days, I have been very active on this forum, and am proud to announce that I have reached the rank of "Baboon". Was thinking about adding this to my resume: 

WSO Contributor - Baboon 

  • Contributed to thoughtful discussions about investment banking and high finance on the WSO forum
  • Shared a comprehensive ranking of US investment banks by prestige and exit opportunities 
  • Received 143 golden bananas in just three weeks of activity 

Will this help me get an interview at an EB/BB? I'm hoping my outstanding achievement on this forum can cancel out my 2.3 GPA from a non-target. 


A subtle nod to WSO on a resume would give me enough of a chuckle for an interview for sure


A single page can't possibly be enough for all your WSO achievements. Attach a seperate page listing the topics of your troll posts—all 25 of them—and the total number of burner accounts


With that low of a rank I'd be concerned you still have a social life. Get back to me when you get those numbers up.
