Goldman Sachs Securities (Sales and Trading) Superday Aug. 20 - How to Prepare and What to Expect

Hey all,

Just got an email (and when I say just, I mean literally fifteen minutes ago) saying that I got a Superday with Goldman in NYC for Securities S&T. Honestly shocked that I got this given that prior I had only done the hirevue, and feel generally underqualified for the role. The email details that I'll be meeting with with 3 - 6 Equities and FICC (Fixed Income, Currencies & Commodities) professionals in 20 minute interviews. It seems to be a super short process as they state in the email that it will begin around 4:20 and wrap up at 5:45.

I've never had a Superday anywhere before, and given that I've only got a little over a week to prepare, I am a bit nervous and need to start prep as soon as possible. Does anyone have any advice as to what I should prepare for? My S&T knowledge is pretty limited as I've been mostly doing PWM apps and sort of applied to this role on a whim.

Also, if anyone else got this invitation and wants to grab some food or coffee beforehand, please hit me up!

When did you submit your application for GS Securities and did you rank this division as your top choice? Btw are you diversity/from a target?

Aug 21, 2019

I believe I did, yeah. And not diversity, not from a target either
