Might be a dumb question but does "Recruiting Year" refer to the year in which the internship takes place? It's asked under the Position Preference section.

GS stopped requiring them because they don't even read them

Jul 13, 2020 - 3:39pm

Is it true GS hirevue's are more situational (i.e. they describe a situation and you respond what you would do in that situation) rather than behavioral (tell me about a time .... etc)? Are they looking for common sense situation answers or creative ones?

Situational and Behavioral are almost the same thing. They don't really care about the answer itself, but rather how you conduct yourself during the Hirevue.

Jul 13, 2020 - 6:23pm

Thanks for the reply. Do you know how GS hirevue's are screened? Is it true that 1 analyst views it and 1 HR person views it and ranks it? Or is it merely a screener where most common sense answers proceed to a superday?

someone on another thread claims to have gotten a IBD NY hirevue invite last Friday. Not sure if he's lying or not. Has anyone else gotten it?

Jul 14, 2020 - 2:35am

Some of my friends have gotten a hirevue for NY IBD but they also applied to other divisions so that might be why

Yes. Does anyone have any insight into who grades these. I have heard campus recruitment team and I have also heard that they float around each group and they decide.

Also, how many applicants get to the hirevue stage?

I submitted two apps and got two hirevues. Is it worth sending in both?

Jul 16, 2020 - 8:59pm

I received a NY IBD hirevue and I applied to NYC IBD, SF IBD, & NY MBD. Anyone know if this counts for all 3. It says, "Please be prepared to answer questions related to the specific division(s) to which you applied but note this invitation is for IBD New York"?

someone on my school's team there said hirevues for sophs aren't likely til first round of junior recruiting is finished ... so likely sometime in august

Jul 18, 2020 - 2:39am

Just checked my status on the Goldman applications page. My NYC IBD says "application under review" and I did not get an email regarding hirevues. I have talked to a few alums from my school who are MDs and partners and they said that I shouldn't be too worried. But I am very worried, are hirevues still coming out?

Did anyone's portal change to selected for superday but didn't get the email?
Mine did not, I'm just asking to see if they update your portal first or if they send the email first

Aug 4, 2020 - 8:17am

Anyone have insight based on their experience about how perfect the HireVue needs to be to land a superday? My voice cracked really bad in the middle of the first question and I can't stop thinking about it.

Aug 19, 2020 - 1:48pm

Got mine today - how long did you have to wait from the notification email until you got the separate email with the actual hirevue link?

Are Hirevue's only out for NYC or got other office also? I networked heavily with a couple offices and attended Insight Day for one of them, but still haven't gotten a Hirevue from that office.
