Citi Analyst Applicant Creates 11-Page Presentation On Why She Should Get The Job
By Bess Levin

Share.When you're applying for a gig on Wall Street these days, you've got to do something that will set you apart from the crowd. Jobs are scarce and while anyone can tell a firm why they should be hired, few go the extra mile to show. Armed with this knowledge and the knowledge that competition for positions at Citi is fierce, one recent applicant knew she had to raise the stakes. She didn't just send Citi a resume and cover letter indicating her interest and qualifications- anyone can do that. She sent them an 11-page presentation entitled "I'm Always Awake With Citi: 9 Reasons Why You SHOULD Hire Me As Your Investment Banking Analyst" filled with headers like "Smart" and lotsa clip art. Perhaps it was the reasons, perhaps it was the fact that she appealed to someone at Citi's love of its insomniac tagline, but we're told she's been asked to come in next week. (We're also told she created similar presentations for other banks, such as BAML, which has also invited her to stop by next week, and that she has interviews set up with "several" firms. Citi may be her "dream," but they're not the only ones who should be offered a piece of this and girlfriend is a hustler.) Job-seekers, take note.
