    Application

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

    Interview

    Applied through school process. I was called into the room where two people talked to me. They were very intimidating to be honest- I think because I lacked in previous investment banking experience they sort of looked down upon me but I was able to answer all their questions. Still have not heard back though.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (New York, NY) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Superday. Behavioural. Very stressful. They asked about investment strategy, aka if we don't invest in T-Bill what will we invest in? Mostly about the 'fit', what sports you do, do you know enough of the team. Very conversational, but intellectually challenging - speaking of the technical part.
