A local man landed a job on Wall Street, all thanks to his creative cover letter that has since gone viral. Some are even calling it the best cove letter ever.

A cover letter, captured by the nation, is considered to be one of the best by a firm on Wall Street. It all came from a former Placer High School student, and it looks like the key to his viral letter was his honesty.

“He broke through the clutter,” said Duff & Phelps spokesperson Alex Wolfe. “We get a lot of interest in a limited number of positions.”

The cover letter written by San Diego State finance student Matthew Ross to investment banking firm Duff & Phelps, and it had just the right mix of confidence and candidness.

Ross wrote, “I won’t waste your time inflating my credentials, throwing around exaggerated job titles or feeding you a line of crap about how my past experiences and skill set align perfectly for an investment banking internship.”
