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

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

According to a campus recruiter, barring unforseen circumstances the app will open tommorow

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?

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.

I'm currently an incoming student in a masters program. There seems to be no option to add a "to be determined" gpa and a place for past schooling. Anyone have any idea what to do?

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?

Jul 1, 2020 - 2:35am

anyone ever create multiple accounts with different emails and apply like 5 times? Gonna run it, chances are too small for the non targets

I can't see IBD for London yet. Also my university grades are not out yet, how am I going to do? just give the official paper which says that grades are not ratified yet?

Jul 1, 2020 - 8:24am

Do NY applicants get asked to do a hirevue? Was expecting to get hirevue but have not gotten yet. Just submitted like 30 mins ago

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."

just applied and realized I wan to switch one of the positions i applied for, can I withdraw and reapply or does it count as one of our apps

Jul 1, 2020 - 11:33am
  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?

Jul 1, 2020 - 12:57pm

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

can anyone else not fill out the disability status? I can't sign the box or write my name. lol kinda ironic

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.

To everyone interested in SF - the recruiter I spoke with recommended getting apps in within the first few days of July 1st, as they move faster than NY w/ interviews! Hirevues for NY come out in approximately 2 weeks I think?

  • Prospect in IB-M&A

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.

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.

Appreciate the reply. Do you which regional offices? I'm not sure whether I should split the 3 applications among other divisions (e.g. GIR, IMD) for NYC office or other regional offices for IBD.
