Software Engineer Intern Interview

Software Engineer Intern

Interviewed at Goldman Sachs

Interview Details – Went in for the first-round interview and ended up tanking. I forgot a lot of the stuff from my class. Interviewers were not pleased and cut the interview short at 30 minutes. First-round interview was mainly personality based and not technical. From what I've heard, the second round interviews are more technical.

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in April 2010.

Interview Details – I went to a career fair at my school campus, and spoke with the representatives. I thought the talk that I had with the representatives wasn't all that interesting, but nevertheless they gave me an interview that same night. They scheduled an interview for the next day, probably because they flew from out of town to hire in the area.
