I am scheduled to have a 2nd phone interview with Goldman Sachs Private Wealth Management. Does anyone have any tips on what to expect? It is for a Financial Investment Professional position? What questions can I expect to be asked?

Thanks all.

Should be mostly fit. Have a pretty good 1 minute shpeal of your thoughts on the economy/markets. They'll be looking for someone well rounded, personable and competitive or sales driven.

You may want to mention this article, or at least read it before meeting with them. Pretty unique/interesting opportunity for their private clients:

It should be mostly fit, with general macroeconomic and financial questions (e.g. what is a P/E ratio? what are some companies you follow? why are you interested in the market? where did the S&P close yesterday?). If you are a junior targeting summer analyst roles, this internship will not provide you with the skill set you need to move into a full time banking role.

I figured since it was with just one HR girl then I wouldn't have to worry about job specific questions, but I'm not so sure that was the right move

Probably doesn't matter, but as a general rule, you should always have a couple questions prepared. It just helps you seem more engaged and interested if nothing else.

Mostly fit, little or no technical
where do you see the market, what investment would you recommend over the next few months
whats your view on "xyz;" xyz = company, politican, world event
so you need to be well versed in everything

pm for more specs if you have any other questions

oh yah, they may throw you a brainteaser

What type of tech questions should I be prepared for? Also what current market info should I know?
