pretty sure all hirevue interviews were due this past Sunday

Mar 10, 2020

I know.. was wondering if anyone heard about next steps.

Mar 12, 2020

Has anyone one heard back? I received an email from them today but i'm trying to figure out if its real or not. It stated I had to complete another HireVue by Sunday but never received the addition hirevue email. The beginning stated : I received an email today about an addition hirevue but it seems to be just like the original. It stated:
Congratulations on being selected to submit a first round HireVue interview for the Goldman Sachs Early Careers Recruiting Process! Please see below for next steps and action items.

Mar 12, 2020

Which early careers and which location did you apply?

Mar 13, 2020

I applied to four, two have interview as the app status and the other two have Resume Under Review. The two that have Interview are Investing and Client Services/Sales Support in NYC and the other two that have Resume Under Review are Trading/Quantitative Modeling and Sales.

Mar 18, 2020

I have interview listed for Fin modeling and Research and resume under review for Sales. I received both hirevues after my status changed to resume under review. Does the app status change to "Interview" mean selection for a superday or was that to reflect the hirevue? Any idea.

Mar 18, 2020

I was wondering the same thing. I saw it change to "interview" but Im not sure if that means that the hirevue is completed or if you were selected for a superday. I think the virus is slowing things a little bit, especially since no one is hiring at the moment and Goldman sachs has asked half of its staff to work from home. This process will probably take a lot longer than anticipated.

Mar 18, 2020

Yeah things will definitely be pushed out. Been trying to find out the answer to that question on other forums but not much luck. Im thinking it means a potential superday/moving on to the next round considering the day after both my applications went to "resume under review" I received the hirevues, then over a week after the hirevue was completed it changed to "interview" but who knows. Think its a good thing regardless.

Mar 19, 2020

I do as well The other two skills that stats previously states "Resume Under Review" were changed the 16th to interview and I submitted my original HireVue on the 2nd. On the website it did states in on a rolling basis but like you two said this virus is going to stretch out the process. Listen I'm trying to think of the positives here and our apps were updated. But I do agree it is a step in the right direction.

Mar 19, 2020

Hello, I received an invite to a HireVue interview for an Early Careers role. To those who have already sat this interview, could you please share the kinds of questions asked? Were there any technical questions? What sort of behavioural questions should I expect (general motivation/ fit or the ones asking to cite examples to demonstrate specific competencies)? I would greatly appreciate any input.

Mar 19, 2020

bump

Mar 20, 2020

Im not sure if it differs based on the position you applied to, but they were ALL behavioral questions for me.

Mar 20, 2020

Which function did you apply for? Mine was Financial Modeling/Research.

Mar 20, 2020

I applied for investing.
For anyone who applied for financial modeling and research - do you guys have a background in this? If so, how many years. I want to apply and i have a little background in this but not enough to be competitive. I wonder if they will be providing training for the people they hire.

Mar 20, 2020

Fin Modeling was behavioral, don't remember specifics. From was the recruiter told me this is a relatively new program at the bank, I believe there is a formal training program.

Mar 29, 2020

When exactly did GS unveil this program?

Only different that I see is that it's 0-3 years of experience and the "New Analyst" program is only for undergrads?

Mar 20, 2020

What offices did you all apply for? I just received an email from the Client Services / Sales Support role and it stated "Thank you for applying to an Operations role earlier this year. At this time, if you have not heard from the recruiting team directly, we will not be moving forward with your application for this particular role." Now I applied to that skill set just to try and get my foot in the door but would rather Investing or Trading/Quantitative Modeling which were just updated. Wanted to just give you all a heads up. Also they haven't updated the App status either still says Interview. So it seems they are behind on updating those.

Mar 20, 2020

Did the client services one have "interview" as status

Mar 20, 2020

I was NYC

Mar 20, 2020

It did, I just checked the Dashboard and they all still say interview. All of the positions I applied to were NYC as well.

Mar 20, 2020

Ahh so the "interview" status probably doesn't mean anything. I wonder if they have already gotten back to the people they plan on moving forward with.

Mar 20, 2020

I'm assuming that, but they updated one of my other applications two days ago so we'll see what happens.

Mar 20, 2020

My other app just got updated to interview

Mar 20, 2020

If you go to to the email that thanks you for completing the hirevue and click hirevue status does it just say "Interview Recieved"

Mar 20, 2020

Im guessing if there have been no updates for a while its not the best news.

Mar 20, 2020

Agreed, I was thinking about emailing the recruiters but I'm hesitant. Well we'll see, if I don't hear anything by next week I'm going to email. I noticed they usually update the statuses around 4pm eastern.

Mar 26, 2020

Did you end up emailing or hearing anything back?

Mar 20, 2020

I applied to Investing (2/16), Financial Modeling/Research (2/16), Sales (3/7), Trading/Quantitative Modeling (3/7), and Client Services/Sales Support (3/7) all in NYC.

On the Career site, my statuses are: Financial Modeling/Research - Currently Not Being Considered (2/24), Investing - Resume Under Review (3/10), Client Services/Sales Support - Resume Under Review (3/12), Sales - Applied (3/7), and Trading/Quantitative Modeling - Applied (3/7).

I got an email yesterday (3/19) that I have a HireVue interview. So is this interview for Investing and Client Services/Sales Support?

Also, does anyone know what exactly this program is? Will the new hires be starting over the summer with the full-time analysts recruited during their final year of undergrad? Will there be a training program specific for this Early Careers program?

Also, literally what kind of people do you all think they're looking for? So many questions and so many unknowns...

Mar 20, 2020

I think its most likely for investing and client services. And I agree there are a lot of unknowns with this - if they are hiring people with 0-3 years of experience its hard to believe that they will not train them. But with everything going on right now, i dont know if they will hire the same amount of people they planned to and when we will hear back for a superday.

Mar 20, 2020

Do you think one would start as an Analyst 1 after being hired as an early career professional with some experience?

Mar 20, 2020

I think they wont be sending out super day invites until this thing with the virus calms down. Everyones work from home now in NYC and I highly doubt interviews will be conducted on skype.

Mar 20, 2020

Does anyone have any tips for the HireVue? Anything in particular you should do to study/prepare in advance?

Mar 21, 2020

So just got an email on Thursday that I have HireVue interviews for Early Careers due Sunday (tomorrow) night. I applied to Trading, Data Development, Business Finance, Investing, Sales, and Fin modeling. Checked my GS careers portal and it says I didn't apply to any jobs?? Emailed their support so hoping to have an answer about whats happening.... but assume its just a tech glitch.

Anyone have any tips? This is my first HireVue.

Mar 21, 2020

When I checked the Career Portal page via the link in the email with the HireVue invite, it also said that I hadn't applied to any jobs. When I used the link to the Career Portal in one of the old "Thank you for applying to Early Careers" emails, all of the apps were on there. So if you still have the old auto-emails that you received wen you submitted your apps, try using the link in one of those! Hope this helps

Just got into it! Thanks so much!!

Mar 26, 2020

did you have your status change from "Resume Under Review" to "Interview"?

Mar 26, 2020

Yep but haven't received any emails yet

Mar 22, 2020

I did my hirevue March 7th. Like others on this thread, my status on GS careers page recently changed from "resume under review" to "interview" on March 20/21. But I can't imagine we'll hear back about a super day anytime soon. As for the early careers program, in GS fashion, I'd imagine they were planning on bringing in a "class of analysts" and doing some kind of training first.

But all firms have put new hires on hold. I recently had a final round interview with another BB in NYC and they've delayed on giving offer letters... Also, they had planned to interview a few other candidates but I had been in the city prior to the WFH environment and was able to conduct an interview early.

Mar 30, 2020

From what I saw in the posting, the job is for people who graduated from 2017-Dec 2019. Can I ask which position you applied to and what work experience you've had thus far?

Mar 31, 2020

Sure- I applied to sales, investing, and trading (NYC).

As for my experience, I'm a recent graduate in the time frame you mentioned. Interned at a large IB doing AM/PWM. Then transitioned to a boutique, mainly because the pay was greater and I was given more responsibility while still attending university. But, I'd recommend sticking with the big brand names. Firms/recruiters seem to care more about that when you're young.

But the GS early careers program seems to be focused more towards candidates with a non-traditional background. Basically, people who got lost in the cracks of recruiting. It's a good way to bring in kids from non-target schools or anyone who is a viable candidate at a cheap cost.

Would it be too late to submit my resume today? Just found out about this.

Mar 22, 2020

If the job postings are still on their site and/or LinkedIn, I'd say go for it! I never saw a hard deadline to submit a resume.

Mar 22, 2020

thanks, just submitted a bunch for NYC and Dallas. am interested in real estate so the Dallas office has a big group there

Mar 26, 2020

Has anyone heard back from any recruiters on the next steps yet?

Mar 26, 2020

With everything thats going on, this will be delayed for a really long time - especially for those who applied to New York.

Mar 26, 2020

I haven't but I anticipate that it'll be sometime until we hear something. I've heard that summer internships (that people received offers for before the pandemic) haven't been rescinded and many are doing their summer training initially. So I think there's still hope. But for the next few months, I think New York will still be in a pretty dire situation so idk what will happen for recruiting for those positions

Mar 29, 2020

When exactly did GS unveil this program?

If you get into "Early Careers | Investing" are you going to get placed into Merchant Banking or Goldman Sachs Asset Management and which subgroup are you placed into?

Mar 29, 2020

Based on my understanding, you only know which group you could get placed into if you get invited to a superday. They probably determine who you interview with based on your resume and need.

Mar 31, 2020

When you received an interview, were one of the emails sent from the NY Early Careers recruiting email? I applied to positions in both the SLC and NYC offices, and received a hirevue invite and an email from the NY Early Careers recruiting email. When I checked the portal, only the application for the SLC office shows "Interview" status. The NYC applications just say "Applied". I thought the NYC email address indicated that the hirevue was for the NYC locations?

Mar 31, 2020

I applied to nyc and the email came from nyc. hope that helps

Apr 2, 2020

Yes that helps. Thanks!

Apr 2, 2020

My status says "Interview" for "Early Careers | Product Management and Marketing | New York"

Given everything going on with COVID-19, I really hope they don't cancel superday but rather postpone it until things situate.

They probably wouldn't do a virtual superday right?

Apr 5, 2020

how soon after you did your hirevue did your status change?

Apr 4, 2020

Any updates?

Apr 6, 2020

does anyone know if an "interview" status means you've been offered a super day? I received an email from HR a couple weeks after submitting the HireVue but haven't heard back yet although the date was updated on the dashboard a few days later which I assume is a good thing...anyone experiencing the same thing?

Apr 6, 2020

what did the email from HR say after you submitted the Hirevue?
