    I got the interview by attending Goldman Sachs Salt Lake City Symposium. I received information about the symposium from my school career service and applied it on Goldman Sachs career page.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Goldman Sachs in December 2009.

    Interview Details

    I was called into the office to have a super day where i interviewed with the vice president of the company and two other associates. The interviews took over three hours to complete and they asked questions from my resume, behavioral questions and finally questions about how i fit into the culture. The interview was straight forward for the most part. The offices were impressive and intimidating at first as the offices look out 40 stories above the hudson river where you can pretty much see the entire NYC skyline.

    The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Goldman Sachs in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    Around 6 rounds interviews from each officers in your department as well as specific ones with the officers in your team. Many technical questions asked although all can be easily found on wikipedia. Guess if it's a face-to-face interview, be ready to be hardly challenged, either to your confidence or to your techinical knowledge.
