I am interested into getting a job at the tech department of an IB, however the information on these positions/environment is not much. After reading about GS in particular, I understand they are looking for people who are in fact geeks (tech gurus) and at the same time they look “smart” in their fashionable suit. Anyone had any experience with internships/industrial placements in technology roles at IB firms?
My biggest problem is that I am not a native English speaker, and I would appreciate your comments/experiences on how they judge you regarding this. I am worried that this might mask my excellent problem solving/technical skills. But then again technology roles do not require too much “socialising”, or do they?
Thanks for sharing your experience.
