IMD - Global Strat Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
New York, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in May 2012.

Interview Details – Went over my resume---describe your research, what kind of experience do you have with finance, and why is your resume in front of me this morning. Then a few words about the firm, the specific desk and related desks that would be colleagues. Explained what kind of work flows in and out and the assets managed by the particular desk, and openings at that desk and related desks.

The gentleman with whom I interviewed was extremely pleasant to talk to, and not at all what most people think when the image of Goldman comes to mind. The interviewer gave me time to answer questions and while he seemed a titch annoyed I was taking too long on some parts, he did help me out in others when it was clear I wanted to spark a dialogue about how I was approaching the problems.
