2. Summer Analyst - IBD Interview

Process Description

Interviewed through OCR, asked for cover letter and resume. 30 minute 1 on 1 interview with senior banker in TMT. Asked some questions about accretion/dilution, and other finance questions. Asked if I had interest in any specific groups, and we talked about tech for a bit. Not very difficult, I think he just wanted to get a feel for the candidates to see who was likable and was sharp on basic financial concepts.

Goldman Sachs Interviews:

Explain what EPS is. What is accretion and dilution? What is the rule of thumb for whether something would be accretive.


3. Private Wealth Summer Analyst Interview

Process Description

I applied the Goldman Sachs Asia wealth management summer analyst internship online. Got two phone interviews first, one VP from Shanghai, one MD from Hong Kong. The phone interviews basically focused on behavior the questions. And they will ask some thing about the market, the differences between Asia and US. or European wealth management. Those people are very nice and answer your questions if you have. After that, I received the on site interview, or group interview. Also focus on behavior questions. They asked a lot about the teamwork experience
