    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Boston, MA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview took place in a hotel with a single senior manager at Goldman. She was rude and seemed to have already made a decision based on my resume. Seems like they are looking for a cookie cutter college grad from top tier school with a degree in economics/finance. Not very open to alternative degrees like my biology degree. Asked questions that require fast math skills on the fly

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview

    On campus recruitment involves shortlisting of preferred candidates and multiple rounds of interviews. In interviews they test various aspects like personality, technical know-how, what you want to do in future and organisation fit. All in all, overall preparation is a must, rather than focussing only on technicals or only on HR questions.

    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.
