This Is Legit, Video Resume

Guy is named Aleksey Vayner, a recent Yale grad. Attached is his video resume:

Trust me, it’s worth sitting through.

Is it May again?

I thought it was June.

Did a search, nothing showed up. Forgive me, your majesty.

Of course, you did post an 18+ month old “Boom Goes the Dynamite” viral video yesterday, Mr. Cutting Edge.

I thought I was having another flashback. Damn that LSD!

Someone posted that on here like 4 months ago. It was even on the Today Show back in October.

Shit, I’ve posted videos from the 80’s too! Please don’t call me “Mr.” again. Makes me feel old!

And what did you search for? I typed in “Resume Video” and viola…guess what popped up?

DAMN! It was from October? It feels like it was from 6 months ago!

This is new to me, so thanks for posting it again.

The most important question is…

Did he get the job?

You are old.

I saw this a while back. Very funny - totally pompous. I mean, a video of you benching 500 lbs - with 3 other guys lifting the bar with you?

Hilarious…

Was it meant to be that way ?
I mean, was it posted to make fun of this guy’s ego, or as a motivational tool ?
(serious question)

No, it’s serious. The guy’s a Harvard grad looking for an investment banking gig, so he created a video resume of what I suppose he feels shows him to be an exceptional individual.

Graduating from Harvard is impressive, a 500 lb press with three guys helping is not. I think he could have done without the ballroom dancing too.

The five hundred pound assisted bench aside the guy was doing a few unassisted (some were) incline bench DB partials with 140 pounds. He was stronger then his build would lead you to believe.

Yea I saw that - in fact, he looked much bigger in the gym footage than he did in the interview sections.

Odd…
