Bump - Will GS accelerate if I have a superday at another BB?

If I have an offer that explodes July 8th... Would it be possible to get a Superday within that first week of the apps opening up?

I'd say there's a good chance. An alumni at the firm told me to apply by midnight on July 1st and expect to hear back very quickly for first rounds and superdays. Assuming all of this still stands, I'd assume that they can definitely accelerate! Goodluck

Probably not because of COVID from what I heard (from friends). I work at a different bank though so don't take my word for it.

Will the goldman sachs accelerate superday if i have an offer from a competing BB/EB? (think EVR/PJT/DB/MS)

If I have an offer for a mid office division in GS, and an offer for IB at an EB, do you think they would accelerate my process for IB in GS?

Did anyone get this error: "We have noticed that you are trying to apply to a combination of Positions that is not valid"?

I'm also getting this error. Anyone know a fix other than using a different email?

Just double-checking. To submit app's for multiple positions, we do it on the same submission by selecting add another position as opposed to submitting a completely separate application. Is that the way to do it?

Is it good enough to land an IB interview if a 3rd year associate pushes my resume to the HR?

I go to a target and from what I've heard GS is one of the strangest places jn terms of networking and getting interviews. I've heard stories of some kids who networked a lot (6/7 or so solid connects) not land an interview. I also heard that one guy got an interview without even having one call

For people who are having issues -- it's because you have another incomplete application you clicked on. You can't delete that application. You have to use a new email address & make a new account to submit

did GS tell you making a new account is best way to go about it? just curious cuz I did notice the unfinished "other" application

Per division yes. They worded it weird, but I believe they mean you can apply up to 3 locations for each division you choose. You could submit 3 apps for IB, 3 apps for S&T etc. You can't submit 9 apps for IB though.

I don't think you can apply for classic and financing groups for the same location? Correct me if I'm wrong.

Assuming you get to the Hirevue stage for multiple locations, does anyone know whether you'd have to do them separately for each one? Or does each location have the same question set and your first Hirevue will be sent to all applications?

For Merchant Banking NYC, one of the options is "equity investing". Is that growth equity or something else?

Hi! I got the reply from GS:" Please note that we do not reject any candidate because of his or her need to obtain appropriate work authorization. And we consider candidates from all backgrounds and are able to sponsor international candidates for work authorization, if successful in the interview process."

anyone knows what the process would be like? hirevue immediately after submitting the app?

  1. I'm taking a summer class that ends today and grades will be finalized within two weeks, but I wanna apply today. I already know what I'm getting so can I assume that grade when applying? Also do they ask for transcript on the app?

  2. Is there a cover letter?

  3. Best advice/suggestions after I eventually submit the app?

I've had multiple GS people tell me directly to just get your app in within the first 12-14 days and you'll be just fine (assuming HireVue completed at this point as well). WSO people are so aggro for no reason...If you want to be super safe, apply within the first week

arbit-RAGE, what's your opinion? Comment below:

It's one of the questions on the page, above the actual "paper" that you typically fill out in applications.

You most likely selected your disability status but didn't even realize it because you were distracted by the paper. Happens to everyone - I've helped like 3 people with this problem today.

General offer then coverage group specific after offers have been made

  • Prospect in IB-M&A
Jul 1, 2020 - 2:34pm

SF offers are group specific according to their insight day, so as long as you say in your interview that you're recruiting for TMT exclusively, then that will be the position. In the application, no, but during interview stage yes.

  • Prospect in 
Jul 1, 2020 - 7:08pm

If SF moves faster, then would this impact our application for New York? For example, if we get a superday or offer from SF, would NY avoid offering an interview? I heard that the locations don't want to compete for candidates.
