NEW YORK CITY, NY— 9-year-old boy Jeremy Fabacher sent a letter to Goldman Sachs applying for a job as an entry-level investment banker. To his surprise, the bulge bracket bank with over $8 billion dollars in quarterly revenues promptly responded to his letter.
Earlier last week, Goldman Sachs opened their applications for banking summer internships. A young Mr. Fabacher’s interest was peaked after hearing about the bank and their practices.
“I may only be 9, but I love money. I started a lemonade stand and grew it into a $500 business, which I now operate with my friends,” the young boy boasted in his CV. “I now work part-time in lemonade distribution, and read Italian literature in my leisure time,” he continued.
“Hi Jeremy, thank you for your letter,” the director of public relations for the firm wrote. “Unfortunately given the large number of applicants, all of which who were significantly more qualified for the position, we have decided not to move forward with your application at this point in time,” she continued bluntly.
“Attached to this message you will find the letter you sent us, except ablaze and in the garbage. Make no mistake about this industry, Jeremy. There is no room for bullshitters. If you apply again in 15 years, you may find your application again ablaze and in the garbage. But, great job on that lemonade stand and please don’t waste our time again until you’re at least a junior in college.”
Fabacher and his parents were ecstatic to hear such an exciting response back from the bank, and the young boy has only been further motivated to work at the bank ever since.
