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?

Unlikely

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

I second this ^ if you have an exploding OFFER and not just another SuperDay with a BB or top EB, they'll do their best to get you an interview within that first week

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

Jun 30, 2020

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?

Yes

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

  • Intern in IB-M&A
Jul 1, 2020

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

Assuming we put 2021 as the recruiting year?

Jun 30, 2020

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

Didn't ask, just used my personal/school instead of my personal/school.

can you only apply to 3 locations max?

  • Prospect in IB - Gen
Jul 1, 2020

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.

  • Prospect in IB - Ind

I dont think this is true. It let me choose a max of 3 apps regardless of location and position

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

You'd only have one extra division specific question for each division. So one hirevue but more questions.

  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?

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

no cover letter nor transcript

Jul 1, 2020

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

Jul 1, 2020

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.

Is there a way to recruit TMT specifically?

  • Prospect in IB - Ind
Jul 1, 2020

General offer then coverage group specific after offers have been made

  • Prospect in IB-M&A
Jul 1, 2020

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.

Is it looked down upon to put preferences such as IBD (sellside) and GSAM(buyside)?

  • Prospect in IB - Ind
Jul 1, 2020

No, each division does not know what other positions you apply for.

  • Prospect in 
Jul 1, 2020

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.

How does referrals work for non-targets at GS? I didn't see a place to put in the name of the employee that referred us but that associate did mention that my resume was pushed to the HR.
