Guess Who’s Back?

Guess Who's Back?Gawker and Dealbreaker are reporting on the re-emergence of the greatest thing to ever happen to this website — the man, the myth, the video-resume-superstar — Mr. Aleksey Vayner.

He’s been shopping his new resume (take a look) around to various NYC-funds, and has even gone to a couple interviews. According to Dealbreaker, he came off as “personable, chatty, and laid back.” Of course he also claimed to have been about to go pro in tennis…at the US Open…until his doubles-partner broke his wrist two hours before his first match. Drat! Those preternatural coincidences can be a real bitch. (You know, it’s not even funny any more; it’s just sad.)

Looking at his resume, we can see what Aleksey has been doing with his time off from Yale. He completed some certs — RIA, CFA (help! what are these?) — from online shop Boston Institute of Finance, and is living currently in Kips Bay, an area of Manhattan about which we know literally nothing.

He also claims to have authored a book, Millionaires’ Blueprint to Success, whose anticipated publication date is Summer ’08, which means some yet unknown guest-editor will be reviewing it probably

Know something about this?

    “Why do people still list their proficiency with outlook and powerpoint as a selling point?”

    1. It demonstrates that you are aware that these tools are used in the workplace. It should probably go without saying, but it at least demonstrates that you know what basic knowledge is required.
    2. Some people actually don’t know how to use powerpoint or outlook. Smaller companies without training programs may be wary of hiring people who don’t know how to use these things.

    JRH: Inconsistencies, incorrect spelling, and falsehoods have no business on a resume, even in high school. Absurd data (Outlook: I can use email!) also do not belong.

    As the Greek god of fortune… I am not flawless, but pretty damn close. If you clean up your resume and work hard, perhaps someday you can be rich like me!

    Left off the resume (because when one is a candidate of his calibre, such things are assumed), is his proficiency in Lotus 1-2-3, COBOL, and MS-DOS.

    And shuriken throwing.

    Is it his fault that your value systems are skewed?
    What’s your IQ? 160? Aleksey can bench that.
    What’s your GPA? 4.0? He’s used his head to break more bricks than that.
    Do you have a job? Well he doesn’t.
    Do you know how to define success? Because unless you said it is inadvertently working out your mind while pumping iron then you are wrong. Don’t let the losers get in your way. Just like Aleksey, people once said I would never be able to play tennis because I couldn’t run, but I showed them. One day I started running and couldn’t stop. I ran clear across America. I just felt like running.

    Someone should contact the references that he lists, see what those people have to say about him, if they even exist.

    Why do you need to call me a tool? All I was doing was agreeing with the comment by saxonkane (which is outstanding by the way!!!!). Of course, maybe I was a little bit too forceful in my comments :) I’ll tone it down it this post so it won’t be deleted. Please, I am not the tool; reserve that judgement for Alex Veyner.
