Cover PowerPoint for Investment Banking Analyst role
Cover PowerPoint slides can be a desired element for effective presentations. This cover letter presentation from a girl who exposes the reasons why Citi should hire her as a Investment Banking Analyst.
Everyone but us thinks this girl’s cover letter is a terrible example of what to do when applying to an investment bank. We think she’s impressive (and so did Citi and Bank of America, who asked her to come in for an interview) but we don’t work at an i-bank. So listen to them, not us.
An applicant to Citi’s first year analyst program recently sent an incredible cover letter to the firm – an 11-page PowerPoint presentation on why she should get the job. It’s simple, easy to read, and it’s attention-grabbing. On top of that, her skills are more impressive than her presentation. She’s got a good GPA, she’s a CFA level-2 candidate. She studies (and aces) Mandarin. And she clearly knows what she’s applying for.
First year analysts usually have to make tons of Powerpoint presentations for their bosses, which her PowerPoint shows she’d be good at. Plus, everyone in banking is obsessed with China right now, so guess what she chose for the background of her presentation. Bamboo tree branches to play up her Chinese skills.
