"Best cover letter ever" nets job offer — From Smith & Wollensky
Long story short: an undergraduate finance student at an "average" university wrote a letter (below)
inquiring about a summer internship at some investment banking firm.
Today's New York Times Business section features a full-page ad (page 5; top) incorporating that letter into an offer of a summer internship: alas, not at an investment banking firm but, rather, at Smith & Wollensky, where our intrepid investment banker wannabe had dinner last summer "when I was touring the east coast with my uncle."
You may not be able to bank a small fortune as a result but you'll sure know meat inside and out.
And an insider's knowledge of meat in these trying times is no small beer.
