Another good one Chris and Scott, this will definitely help out us college students (and especially those liberal arts majors worried about how to break into finance)

Is a Kindle version of the book in the works?

Excellent point about giving examples to back up claims, such as "I'm a team player." I made this mistake months ago and just listed skills and attributes. My interviewer was pretty laid back and ask for specifics, but I still got dinged.

Thanks! This was great. It looks like you both are really enjoying giving out advice, which we all definitely appreciate.
