Dear Fellow WSO Members,
A 3rd party recruiter reached out to me for an Operations role(Trading Operations) at Goldman Sachs. It is a contractual role for 9 months, thus no benefits and etc. From my networking, GS is probably the hardest to transition from a MO role to a FO role, given that the trade support people are not even in proximity with the traders. Therefore, the interaction with traders are slim to none. What's your take on that?
Anyways, I told the recruiter to put me for an interview. I have no intention of accepting the offer even if I receive one. But my game plan is just to meet with the actual GS recruiter and hope to get that connection (for future permanent job openings) even if I do not take the role in the end.
Would love to hear some advice regarding my situation. I've graduated last month and I gave myself a three month-deadline to find a junior trader/assistant trader role before I consider taking a trade support mid office role.
