An embarrassing email apparently sent by a brand new Citigroup employee to a group of analysts and associates at the bank’s institutional clients group in Australia is making the rounds. “Looking to be a rock star at this place – feel free to send through
your tips, but I think I’ve got this one covered,” the email stated including two attachments of the young banker.
The first attachment appears to be from a course catalogue from an Australian university drumming up the bachelor’s in commerce. The Citi employee is featured in the clipping posing against a wall.
The other is a clip from Cleo, an Australian magazine. This might provide a hint to why someone might be pulling a prank on the poor guy.
The rookie Citi employee once told Cleo, in order to be successful “you need to be thick-skinned. I guess the ‘alpha-male’ type.”
Looks like someone might be seeing just how thick his skin really his.
Citi was not immediately available for comment at the time of publication.
