Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (London, England (UK)) in February 2016.

Interview

You should always take the time to think through your resume / CV and prepare to discuss the items on there – even if you only have 15 minutes to think about it – but the rest of this list is optional and depends on how much time you have available.

Interview Questions

  • 1. That guy over there is from Wharton / Harvard / LSE / Oxbridge and has perfect grades – why should I hire you over him, given that you’re much less impressive?
    2. Why did you NOT receive a return offer from your internship?
    3. What’s your greatest fear about investment banking?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (London, England (UK)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for the Spring intern programme for 1st year undergraduates in the UK, my interview ended up being for the Securities division. It has by far the shortest application form online compared to other investment banks, which is surprising but nonetheless gives all the space you need to give the relevant information. I had a telephone interview that lasted for 30 minutes, during which we went through my CV. Advice would be to read recent financial news, know everything on your CV very well and be able to demonstrate that you have knowledge in the areas you list there. My questions were geared towards the Chinese economy, for example, due to that being a particular area of interest for me on my CV.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (London, England (UK)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Fairly straightforward, know your math. Know why you want the job, sell yourself as mathematicaly capable, and honestly just be friendly. Interviwers were friendly, nothing to complain there but dont be surprised if they walk out of the interview because they have a meeting

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (London, England (UK)) in February 2013.

    Interview

    I applied through an online application then I had an interview (two interviewers) at their London office. It was mainly competency questions and going through my CV. They also asked a bit about current affairs. All in all I enjoyed the experience. I think it's really important for you to show that you're genuinely excited about the opportunity to work there. Find something that shows you want to work for them and not any other IB.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (London, England (UK)) in February 2013.

    Interview

    You submit an application where you need to emphasize your leadership skills, submit CV, and all the other things you would usually do for an interview.

    If it goes well, you will have a phone interview where you will speak to a current employee (usually associate or VP). In my case, the interviewer was very pleasant and asked me about my courses in uni and some of the more odd parts of my CV. In my case, I wrote I had an interest in philosophy and we discussed Adam Smith and his relation to capitalism today.
