2020 Goldman Sachs Exploratory Program HireVue question.

My application for the program was selected and I got my email for my interview today. I was wondering if anyone else had the interview so far and what was the question. (I only have one question but I can't see it without starting the interview.)

Hi did you do the interview? I am also wondering what they will ask :(

Oct 19, 2019

Do the Hirevue questions you get differ based on the specific program you apply to? (Diverse Abilities vs. Pride Summit vs. Women's Leadership, etc.)

Oct 30, 2019

If you completed the interview, I would love to know what the question was and the time you were given to answer it. Thank you!

Oct 30, 2019

Applied for the non-diversity virtual call program. Doing hirevue tomorrow

Changed my mind and just took it. The question was to tell a time that you did something impactful on your resume. There was 2 minutes allowed to answer

And did you reply "I released the hirevue question to the entire world via WSO."?

Got the HireVue as well. Would really appreciate if anyone who has completed the interview could tell how many questions to expect and whether it is specific to the program you apply to

Nov 13, 2019

Got the same question as fergulog did to describe a time i did something impactful

"Talk about something on your resume and what skills you picked up and how you contributed." or something like that. I just completed it last night.

Nov 21, 2019

Anybody hear back yet? I did mine in the first week of November.

Nov 22, 2019

I did my interview the 1st week of November too. Then just this week they sent me another email asking for another interview. So I did it and it's basically the same as the last one. But other that still nothing. I guess we'll hear back mid-december.

Nov 29, 2019

I think I royally screwed up my first one so it would be a miracle to get the chance to do another. I'm not going to count myself out yet but I'd imagine the HireVue has significant weight in the decisions so I knocked myself down a few pegs.

Dec 17, 2019

when did you apply?

Dec 3, 2019

Just completed my interview this morning. Does anyone know when we hear back from them?

I'm 99% sure everyone got the same question. mad easy but they probably got a trillion responses so we'll have to see. Based on what I read I don't know why they wouldn't accept pretty much everyone lol

Dec 16, 2019

Anyone hear back yet?

i submitted in the Oct but haven't heard it back

Also got into diverse abilities. How was the program last year? And yes let's start a chat.

Jan 10, 2020

When did you get the email?

Jan 13, 2020

I got the email on the 9th.

Jan 10, 2020

The program last year was to fly us in New York City, setting up hotel suites for us and for the first half day invited us over to Headquarters to hang with HR. Second day people from individual groups came down to talk to us. Overall very thorough and decent. Good luck!

What's the new notification date?

Was it for undegrad camp or womens program?

Jan 17, 2020

If I haven't recived an email with a new notification date, should I assume I was rejected?

Jan 17, 2020

I wouldn't assume anything yet; a lot of times they send out rejections first.

    • 1
Jan 17, 2020

My status still says under review, and 17th was the notification date (my date assigned is still 17th). Not sure if there are other people in the same boat.

Jan 17, 2020

I think even if we get rejected from the actual programs (ones successful candidates would be invited to come in the physical office), our portal would still show under review because there's still the virtual event taking place in May.

But I'm in your boat now mine still shows under review and haven't gotten any GS emails today. Is the deadline to notice still 1/17?

    • 1
Jan 17, 2020

Some people have recieved a new notification date email. It's the 22nd now. Do you think they reply to you if you get rejected?

Jan 17, 2020

my date assigned says 1/18. Does that mean anything?

Jan 17, 2020

I was wondering about the same thing. Mine changed to the 18th too.

Jan 17, 2020

May I ask which program did you apply to? Mine said 22nd.

Pride Summit? Anyone received any updates?

Jan 18, 2020

Still waiting on that

Jan 18, 2020

did anybody write cover letters when applying?

Jan 18, 2020

Nope. Did you?

Jan 18, 2020

Did anyone else get a new notification date for the women's program? The system is currently under maintainance...maybe thats why there's a delay?

Jan 18, 2020

I didn't get any email. What's the new notification date?

Jan 18, 2020

.

Jan 20, 2020

Event date says 1/23 so I guess that's when women's camp will come out?

Jan 20, 2020

I honestly have no clue. I'm just as confused as you are. I don't know if they have sent out even one acceptance yet. Not sure if its a delay or we're just rejected. Someone in the thread said they got a new notification date via email. But they haven't replied to me, and no one else said they got a new date.

Jan 20, 2020

I applied for women's camp and my event date is 1/23. Haven't heard back yet

Jan 20, 2020

I'm getting super restless lol. Has anyone heard anything for any of the programs other than diverse abilities?

Jan 20, 2020

I applied for the womens program and did not get the update email. Does that mean I did not get in?

Jan 20, 2020

I don't think. anyone has received a reply yet

Jan 20, 2020

Someone above said they applied for the womens program and got an email

Jan 20, 2020

I have a question, guys. I applied for the Virtual one cuz Im an international student. Does anyone know any exceptions? I read thru all the programs and I cannot find myself in any target groups. It's like if you're asian, you're not getting shit...

Jan 20, 2020

if you are not in a target group it doesn't mean you're not getting shit. it means you are not a traditionally under represented minority, female, or have a disability. asians fall under two of those categories.

Jan 20, 2020

That narrative is bs imo. I grew up in a developing country. Just look at the description of those programs, they dont even include asians. Btw, dont think that I feel pity or anything. I already got an internship at another big company. Just wanna state some facts.

Jan 22, 2020

It looks that way, unfortunately. That is, unless they send acceptances out in waves or something, but since the notification date was today, I doubt it

Jan 22, 2020

Last year they sent out rejection email so there is hope until that rejection email hits your inbox

Jan 22, 2020

For the ones who heard back, did you guys go to a target school ?

i got an invite to undergraduate campy on Jan 22 and i completed the RSVP form a few days ago. but i received an email saying "Thank you for registering your interest to attend the 2020 Undergraduate Camp. To be considered for this event, please attach a resume to your profile if you haven't already done so. We will reach out to you if you are selected to attend at least two days before the event date with details." and when i open my dashboard, the status is "selected - pending action." anyone has the same issue?

Jan 28, 2020

Same here; when I click on the RSVP link it says "page not found". It will probably just take a couple of days I guess. I am sure there is no problem.

Jan 28, 2020

same. just a little nervous when i got the email this morning

Jan 28, 2020

Thanks for posting this man, I've had the same problem. My guess is that there's just a system error going on and it'll change when we get our flight info and everything.

In the meantime, if you haven't already, you should go to "edit profile" --> attach your resume to both your normal profile + where it says "files for events".

Jan 28, 2020

thank you! calm my nerves

Does anyone else's profile still say under review for women's camp? Does this mean we are rejected since decisions already came out?

Jan 29, 2020

It says the same thing for me. Maybe they're waiting for the people from 22nd to accept/reject and will invite more people based on how many people reject, if any

Jan 29, 2020

Just received a call saying that there is some kind of review process that takes 7-14 days so they are still reviewing my application and will get back to me within that time frame

Hey, I just got my hirevue for 2020 "Virtual Insight Series" ... I have a few questions though:
What question did you guys receive
When would it be if we are accepted?
What is the point of this program,?
Is it a specific "Diversity" program, or is it available to any undergraduate sophomores?
Also, is it a virtual program (online)? If so, shouldn't we all get an invite lol.
Thanks!
