I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in February 2013.

Interview Details – Position in Operations in the NYC office; applied through on-campus recruiting, entire process was two half-hour interviews in-person, each with two current employees. Everyone was extremely friendly and responded well to enthusiasm, especially in regards to lesser-known aspects of Goldman's work. Received a call a few weeks later with an offer.

Interview Question – Nothing too out there, but demonstrating a knowledge of the company more broadly is definitely a good idea. I spent a large portion of my interview talking about how impressed I was by the 10,000 Women campaign and thus by the company as a whole. Make sure to look through their website a fair amount pre-interview.   Answer Question
