I would just like to tell you about me application experience with GS. I applied for the Legal Analyst position
My first round interview was based on my cv except the following questions:
- Where do you see yourself in five years time
2)Why Goldman Sachs?
I then got a call the following day inviting me for the second round.
My second round consisted of three interviews. Again they were based on my CV except for the following:
- How do you keep up to date with the news
- Why should we pick you
3)where do you see yourself on 10 years time
4)Why did you go to the Uni that you did
- What deals are you aware of that we have done
- Do you know what business area you will be working in
7)What appeals to you about GS
- you don’t have finance experience, how will you cope with the role?
I got a call the next day to tell me I was successful. I start July next year.
Guys I also want to say that I applied in 2008 and 2009 and got rejected outright! So if that is the story of any of you guys, dont be discouraged - just take another look at you CV and covering letter and if possible go along to career events and get a professional to look at it for you, ideally someone who works in an investment bank. It may need re-doing as mine did!
Also I did not go to Oxbridge, UCL, KCL, LSE or Imperial!
