Wall Street Job Applicant Submits Video Interview

Want to get a job on Wall Street? Every graduating senior on Wall Street seems to. Now there is a quick way to stand out from the crowd. Submit a video interview with your resume. That's what this Alexsey Vayner, Yale '08, did. He wanted a job so bad at UBS that he created a video interview of himself - lifting weights, body sculpting, you get the picture. Watch "Impossible is Nothing."

Mr. Vayner’s curious celebrity came after an 11-page cover letter and résumé as well as an elaborate video that he had submitted to the Swiss bank giant UBS AG (NYSE UBS) showed up on two blogs, and then quickly spread on the Internet. The clip, staged to look like a job interview, is spliced with shots of Mr. Vayner lifting weights and ballroom dancing and has him spouting Zen-like inspirational messages.
