I wanted to know if having a family connection at a top bank will increase my chances of getting hired as an analyst next year.
A family connection is an MD at Goldman Sachs. I think he was one of the youngest MD in company history, and according to my uncle he has a lot of pull at GS. I have no prior IB work experience, and I do not come from a target school (Penn State). I have decent grades (3.4-3.5) and a good resume. I spoke with him briefly on the phone a week ago and we set up a time for me to go up and see him at GS in his office. If I express a great deal of interest in working for GS, what do you think he will be able to do for me? Thanks.
