Does anyone have any insight on the FT recruiting process for GS Global Investment Research? I got a first round HireVue interview but haven't completed it yet.

Also, it says to complete the interview by October 3; does this mean it has to be done before October 3 or can I do it on that date? Thanks!

The recorded video interview? Should be able to be done on October 3rd, but don't quote me. Mine said I had to complete by September 21st and I had no problem doing it on that date.

The questions are almost all behavioral, the question plays, you get 30 seconds prep, 2 minutes to answer. It will be awkward.

Thanks! It will definitely be awkward. Have you heard back?

Was that person applying to the same office as the contact that you have? I would say most likely not. They are usually location specific.

On the other hand, she may be lying to you..but I doubt it

Would you please give out more information? Are they recruiting for equity research in NY? I would appreciate it if you can PM me.

Friend from non-target recently had a superday with Goldman Equity Research last week so they are taking kids outside of summer intern class

There adding IR to the Salt Lake City office.

Don't be fooled...the Salt Lake City "Business Analyst" position is back office. I talked to a former GS GIR analyst who confirmed this. They're recruiting for this position at my school, a non-target, as well. Trust me - it's back / middle office.

People tend to think life is a race with other people. They don't realize that every moment they spend sprinting towards the finish line is a moment they lose permanently, and a moment closer to their death.

Thanks for all the information. Would appreciate it if anyone can give me some advice. My contact is MD in GIR. He passed my resume to HR (not this recruiter). Should I tell my contact the real situation? At least now, it seems that the recruiter lied to me, which is completely unnecessary.

oh also they were the only GS division at my school that didn't have an interview schedule attached...

While you probably didn't make them think that you're a superstar they have to have, it's not necessarily bad news to still be waiting to hear back a week after a first round interview. It'd probably be bad news if it was a superday. No harm in reaching out to find out about the status of your application, but if you don't reach out you'll probably hear back soon anyway.

Is this for their Salt Lake City location? I interviewed for GIR as well 3 weeks ago and already received an offer.

Oct 18, 2016

You probably didnt get it then. I know people who interviewed with them on 10/4/2013 and have received calls for the next interview so basically within 2-3 days. You may be in the second rung of people they are looking at. Good luck.
