Yo will you help me understand why everyone is tweakin out abt not getting a HV? It says on their website that the deadline is Nov 20 and they aim to let everyone know by Dec 20. Wouldn't this mean that you and everyone else still have a shot? Is there another deadline I don't know about? What am I missing here

Who grades these. Are they the alumni group or the groups you applied for or other?

Combination of both - for targets, alumni bankers are highly involved and send HCM a list that pretty much gets pushed through. For non targets it's much more HCM directed.

I can speak for myself. I spoke with 2 VP and 2 Analysts. both convos with the VP's were interview-like

I heard the opposite. Maybe some "what do you think about the current state of the markets" but nothing actually technical.

Hopefully someone can confirm

Has anyone received the HireVue link itself yet? I'm still waiting on the HireVue link (not the email from recruiter)

Does anyone know how many tries we should have on hirevue questions?

What exact time was it sent? You think they'll send out another wave for NY or no?

Got a hirevue, semi-target for NY but target for SF. No networking, but good internships/extracurriculars. Is this hirevue really going to be technical? I really though GS hirevues were typically non-technical

did you participate in any of the diversity programs? from my understanding I thought GS only gave hirevues to people who participated in diversity programs or had referrals through networking

  • Prospect in IB - Gen
Jul 16, 2020 - 8:25pm

It's not. 4-5 behavioral questions with detailed scenarios. 1 try to answer. 1 IB specific question. If you applied to other divisions and this is your first Hirevue, expect division specific questions on those too.

i applied for 3 different locations (NY, SF, CHI) – I got only NYC and see that NYC has been the only IBD location released. However, is there any chance we would receive additional hirevues for the other two applications?

  • Prospect in Other
Jul 16, 2020 - 8:01pm

no in the email it says that we would only be asked to submit one hirevue for the recruiting cycle

Just did the interview:

I cant remember all of them, but pretty standard:

1) Why GS
2) Why Banking
3) Why is a liquidation model relevant during markets right now?
4) Are you a leader or a team member and why?
5) What are markets doing right now?

The questions don't really change from year to year from what I've been told.

  • Intern in IB-M&A
Jul 19, 2020 - 5:12pm

There are 5 behavorials and 1 division based question according to folks who I've networked with at the firm.

why is this dude getting MS? I have heard as well (at least for semi-targets and targets) that we are competing with other candidates in our school?

CAN ANYONE CONFIRM THESE QUESTIONS + "What are you passionate about"? THANK YOU!!!

Jul 16, 2020 - 8:12pm

edited this - i think it wasnt too selective. this was the first hurdle so b proud if u got it, but its definitely harder to go hirevue->superday

I think almost everyone gets a HireVue. I'm at a nontarget, talked to like 2 people but doubt they flagged my resume and I got a HireVue

GPA? What's your work experience and extra-curriculars like? People have said it's selective in the past

Jul 16, 2020 - 9:18pm

3.7 gpa, target, non-diversity, networked with 2 alumni, attended all on-campus events


  • Prospect in IB - Gen
Jul 16, 2020 - 9:44pm

3.95/4.0, target, two IB internships – I've heavily networked and many of those I spoke to internally said that while getting the hirevue was selective, the largest cut is hirevue –> superday. Be glad with the hirevue, but know that it is still extremely competitive and we've only gone through the smaller cut in the process.

In years past sophomore recruiting is done after junior recruiting so you shouldn't freak out just yet. Sounds like you're set to be honest so good job.

Jul 17, 2020 - 1:11am

I can confirm that sophomore recruiting is done after junior recruiting.

how do u guys know it is for ibd?? did you check the portal and it said ibd is reviewing your application? my email only says "interview with goldman sachs"


Jul 16, 2020 - 11:32pm

i got hirevue earlier this week, the portal said gir is reviewing my application and ibd is application received, but the questions were all ibd... does it mean I got ibd hirevue?

Didn't get one, non-target. Can I still network my way in or is it officially over?

  • Prospect in IB - Gen
Jul 17, 2020 - 12:04am

it isnt over until you get a rejection. Get in referrals and have people bat for you to get your app moving...

Jul 17, 2020 - 6:42pm

I still haven't been officially rejected for the SA2020 class...

Go to a Semi Target with really solid ECs (including 4 internships, HF/PE/IB/AM), Good GPA, and networked with a VP in CIMD (among other analysts in IBD) who specifically mentioned he highly recommended me but didn't end up getting a hirevue. Rip.

Safe to assume multiple waves? or anyone know if it's one and done? Would suck if I grinded only to not even get a hirevue

Jul 17, 2020 - 1:09am

Either you are exaggerating about your credentials or it's just really tough to break in even at a semi-target. If you're not exaggerating, then that's definitely a bummer.
