8. An NYU junior named Mark sent an overzealous CV to J.P. Morgan last year. It boasted his ability to do 35 pull-ups and quickly became the laughingstock of Wall Street. It was read by Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Nomura, Citi, Deutsche Bank, PricewaterhouseCoopers, KPMG, Wells Fargo, Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, Perella Weinberg Partners, and Barclays Capital employees who forwarded the letter with responses such as: "Prepare to lol all over yourself."


9. Financial analyst Jordan McDonnell wanted to change careers, but he had trouble getting his foot in the door. So he created a non-resume to show off his creativity. It was viewed about 90,000 times in one week.


10. Perhaps the most viral resume of all time belongs to Aleksey (Vayner) Stone, who submitted a 7-minute video resume titled "Impossible is Nothing" to UBS when he was a senior at Yale. He also submitted a glamour shot, a 1.5-page resume and an 8-page writing sample. The video showed Stone ballroom dancing and bench pressing nearly 500 pounds. Unfortunately the video went viral in a bad way, and Wall Street made a mockery of Stone. A few weeks ago, Stone passed away at age 29 from a drug/medicine-induced heart attack.
