Best.Resume.Ever.

Aleksey Vayner's 11 page resume (and accompanying 7 minute video titled "Impossible is Nothing") has become the joke of Wall Street. The Yale student's resume has been circulating among employees at Lehman Brothers, Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan Chase & Co., Credit Suisse Group and Wachovia Corp. via emails with titles such as "What NOT to do when looking for a banking job." Of course, Aleksey is now the latest viral video phenomenon...

More stories on Aleksey...

"Yale student's resume, motivational video become Wall Street joke"

"The greatest CV ever filmed"


P.S. In his defense, Aleksey does appear to be a very solid tennis player!

P.S.S. You have to give someone bonus points for mentioning a 1650-pound leg press in the "Leadership" section of his resume.

What a douche... I mean, great attitude, but he's taking it a little far, nyet?

As for the 1650 lb leg press, I'm not impressed. Why? It doesn't say if he went all the way down with it, or only slightly. Plus, Pat Robertson put out a video a couple months ago where he leg pressed 2000 lbs, and he's around 70 years old. Sounds like this dude needs to train harder if a 70 year old hyper conservative Christian minister can lift more than he can.

I bet anyone who attended classes with this dude at Yale want to kick his ass.

Sorry Machine. I just hired him. He starts at Cardinal next week and he's not pleased with your negative comments about him... He wants me to set up a meeting with you.
