    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview Details

    I had 2 half hour interviews 2-on-1 with one interviewer doing most of the questioning and the other watching intently. Very hard to tell what the silent one was thinking and very nerve racking. Most of the questions were about my past experiences and how I solved problems. The questions that threw me off were the more personal questions like who is my idol. Maybe not the hardest question but I just wasn't expecting it.

    Intense. Requires careful preparation. Seek feedback through mock interviews before superday. Have conviction.

    Interview Questions
    • Most questions are derivatives of questions on prep guides. I was asked how to solve the European crisis, which was expected. The surprise was the detailed follow-up on nuances. It was basically a pressure session.   Answer Question
