Being that I was ineligible for all diversity events, I registered for the Goldman Sachs Virtual Insight Series, which seems to be a virtual networking event. I just received the e-mail for the HireVue, with one question in a separate e-mail.
The main e-mail says the interview length is around 10 minutes, while the other e-mail says the question is 2 minutes. Will there be other questions on top of the one in the e-mail?
Has anyone been in this program before? Is it even slightly useful? If they do select me for this virtual tour, is that the kind of thing I should put on my resume when looking for an actual internship.
I am a sophomore at a Canadian semi-target.
GS Virtual Insight Series: Goldman Sachs Exploratory Program
The Goldman Sachs Virtual Insight Series is a popular student program designed to help prospective GS employees learn more about the firm and interview process. Per GS, you will be able to "experience the learning and networking opportunities of our in-person camps from your own mobile device through this multi-day, flexible hour live learning series." You can gain exposure to multiple career paths and build the skills you need to successfully interview for the prestigious bank.
One WSO community member @777new , who went through the program explains:
The program is very helpful. It lets you know how you need to prepare for interviews for internships etc. It also tries to develop your "relationship" building skills over networking. Lots of professional skill building and stuff like that. Quite general. Probably helped in demonstrating interest and good to pop into your "why GS" answers, but you could find all the info they give you on their website or WSO.
Event has (there was more, here are a few things that I remember)
- practice hirevue
- kick off calls/recruiting webinars with HR
- informational calls with analysts/associates/VPs in several different divisions (not one on on, more of a conference format with Q&A)
- resume and interview office hours
- Most of the events last year were either after hours or do on your own time, and everything was optional
- There were also like 5-6 options to attend each event
