    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (New York, NY) in November 2017.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Newark, NJ) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Superday was in the NJ office. Three back to back interviews and a meeting with the director of the program. Mostly behavioral and very relaxed. Best thing I found was to be aware of what is normally asked in IB interviews and weave those answers into the interview without being prompted. Such as bringing up companies the you follow or investments that you make. Major focus on teamwork and communication.
