    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs in March 2018.

    Interview

    I sent my application directly to the team manager and received a response two weeks later. The interview was not as difficult as I expected. I talked with the manager and two other analysts in the team. They asked quite similar questions
    + Tell me about yourself
    + How do you deal with stress
    + What can you bring to this position
    + If you want me to remember 3 things about you after the interview, what would that be
    + Ask about my past experience or projects
    + Do you have any questions for me?

    I am still waiting for the result so I will update when I hear back from them
