Summer Analyst Interview

Summer Analyst
New York, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in November 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online through campus recruitment. I was called for an interview on 18th of this month. They basically ask about you, so what ever you are be confident and explain them. I am not from finance background (from Computer engg.) so they asked question about how would you fit in etc. Be very sure about your resume, this is the your only paper document which they have it, hence ask many things from it. From my end it was good, but didnt get a reply from them.

Richardson, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in May 2012.

Interview Details – Found the interview via college career fair. The interview process took two weeks. The day of the interview they said that their next step is inviting selected candidates to "super day" where they have a 2 hour interview. The interview was 2:1, with both interviewers coming from a technical background having worked many years at Goldman.

Interview Question – Mostly expected questions: Describe a time when you had to lead. Tell me about yourself. Tell me more about your leadership roles. Walk me through your resume.   Answer Question

Summer Analyst Interview

Summer Analyst
Salt Lake City, UT

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in February 2013.

Interview Details – There was only one hour 1:1 interview asked by two interviewers. All the questions asked were specific to my resume. The questions asked were pretty logical with certain technical implementations. Heavy focus is given on those who possess a great balance of the technical and business skills.

Negotiation Details – Summer Analysts are offered a fixed salary, so no negotiations.
