For some reason I experimented and was able to find the application when using chrome's incognito window. I think it might be some server connectivity issue. Hope that works for you guys, and good luck!

Has anyone gotten a sense of whether or not they are actually trying to recruit FT this year? I networked with someone from my school a couple weeks ago and he said very little to no FT recruiting will probably be happening this year. he also encouraged to reach out to him and HR in early august when they have a better picture of the situation. Anyone heard different things?

If I can get a referral from current analyst. Where to fill the referral information?

Should internal mobility hires go through this external application or is there another process? Is this discouraged at all?

Would probably look at positions in their Global Markets division. Especially if you have coding experience.

July 1st for MBD. I think it makes sense that it's this this early since a lot of other growth/venture firms are recruiting right now, or plan to by early August

Semi-target, non-diversity. Previously at a hedge fund (quant) and doing strategy at a startup this summer

For reference, dinged from KKR/Warburg for growth investing on resume screen, so I'm assuming GS has a relatively low bar for HireVues (or the former firms weren't considering apps from my school)

Target, non-diversity, 4.0 GPA, currently interning at a MM boutique.

This is also for a classic group as well so I'm not sure in terms of the financing groups.
