    Interview

    A Good Resume is the one with a clear message in one glance. One usually doesn't have much time go through the specifics. Also, most of the resumes look more or less the same if you start reading thoroughly. So what distinguishes you is how much you can convey to a third person in one glance. However a crucial point that one needs to keep in mind is - The third person may be an IITian or may be not. So your resume needs to be optimally elaborate and detailed. Good at glance and not boring with details.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Salt Lake City, UT) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Interviewed by two people, each individually, then together. Pretty typical interview, but a bit higher pressure as questions became somewhat more demeaning, especially after realizing that I wasn't a great candidate.

    First a phone interview, before being called into the office and undergoing several technical interviews with MDs and a competency based interview with the HR department. These all took place over the period of one day so it was quite an intense session.

    Interview

    four rounds of interview, the interviewers were a mix of individuals from US/UK and India. Very emphatic but asked some good questions. The first round was HR telephone, second round was Business telphone, third round was live associate round and fourth round was vp interview round. After this HR forwarded the confirmation of selection and I dont think that there is room for negotiation of salary
