    His extra points for refreshing candor will more than likely cancel out his two (that I counted) misspelled words. Attention to detail is crucial in finance!

    Good for this dude. Honesty is a lost credential. I hope he gets his dream job and I hope whoever gets him appreciates his willingness to work hard and not cover everything with a load of bull.

    There's always a pessimist...I think this young man should be given a chance..if he doesn't work out at least he gave it a go. We need more young people with this attitude and desire to continue learning and progressing. Good for him!!!!!

    "will work for next to nothing."

    That's the reason the letter is getting attention.

    Romorg, at the company I work for, it's my job to interview and hire people. Believe me, if I needed someone to fill an entry position this guy would get the job hands down over the any of the applicants I have interviewed within the last year.

    Very few potential employees talk like this; most bring up pay, hours, vacation, days they would have to work, et cetera long before they talk about what they are willing to do for our company.

    Smart kid ... he knows what the people who do the hiring want to hear.

    It's refreshing to see someone who's willing to earn his way; someone who doesn't pander for special treatment.

    You've got my vote of confidence, someone better snap this guy up before he gets away.

    I'm not sure I get what is unique about this. Is this not what everybody says when applying for a job for which they have no experience?
