Matthew Ross was featured by his local newspaper for his excellence in high school football, basketball and baseball. In an industry sadly bereft of honesty one young aspiring banker, Matthew Ross took the time to write a cover letter that so impressed the individual it was meant for that he in turn decided to share it with other Wall st executives for its candor which of course then led it to being shared by other executives, social media and so forth.


Perhaps what makes the letter most interesting is not only its candor but the suggestion that Wall st bosses are from time to time willing to overlook the traditional pedigree qualifications they insist is the best fit which might be a backhand way of saying maybe Wall st bosses are starting to come clean with the notion that just because you know such and such and were educated at a premium entity doesn’t necessarily mean one has the pizzaz to excel, the integrity or ability to make good decisions or simply the discipline and resolve to do anything it takes to get ones foot through the door.
Of course what makes the letter a little sad is the fact that the applicant might be wasting his integrity and good attitude in an industry sorely lacking in those very qualities….
