Interview Process at Goldman

I have my first round interview at Goldman Sachs next week. Does anyone know, if I advance, about how much time would pass between then and the next round (I guess the Super day)? Someone told me the next interview would be within a few days; I was assuming it would be in January or February. I want to make sure I will be available for the interview. Thanks.

Good question. I'd like to know also.

I was under the impression that they let you know if you passed the first round within a couple days, but the superday is usually later on. I could be wrong. Can anybody clarify?

Here is the list of key dates listed on GS.com

November to January
* Goldman Sachs information sessions
* Specialized Goldman Sachs events
* Participation in school organized events such as conferences and career fairs
* Some events are restricted to sophomores and juniors, but most are open to all undergraduates

January to February
* Application deadlines. Refer to your school's application submission deadline
* Candidate interviews
* Informational events specifically for summer intern candidates

February to March
* Offers are extended to candidates
* Skill building workshops and target events for underclassmen

May to June
* summer internship start dates, depending on divisional program

Its the quotes ("...") that filter all the results. Remove those and you get a whole bunch.

Can anyone shed more light on this process? Also, I have some in mind, but what are some good questions to ask the interviewer in round 1?

I got an answer from the HR representative about that; she said super day will be next semester. Let's hope I get an invite!

There are accelerated interviews on the 18th of this month for Banking in New York. Anyone get a slot?

I really cannot believe this. I woke up this morning, my interview being at 2:30, feeling sick as a dog. Fever, aches, congestion, and a wicked sore throat; feels like I'm choking and my voice is just a whisper. I had to reschedule my interview. The HR rep said they would do their best to reschedule this 1st rounder in person, or by phone. I hope I haven't ruined my chances. If it wasn't for losing my voice, I would have gone. But I feel like pure sh*t. No way I would have made a good impression even by thoughing it out. I probably would have gotten everyone sick, I'm very oozy.

YES!!! I just set up a phone interview for Monday, no problem. The HR rep was very understanding and empathetic. Any tips for how to conduct a phone interview?

Show your enthusiasm across the phone, think out loud (for problems) so you avoid awkward silence...phone tends to be easier (but thats just personal)

I think it went really well. I think they really liked the questions I asked them. They referred back to the answers I gave with praise.

marsilni, when did they say they would get back to you?

Dec 2, 2008

They sent an email to the candidates on Wednesday saying they were in the process of making their final decisions. They asked us to be patient. I was hoping to know by today, but hopefully we'll know before Christmas.

good luck!

Haven't heard back yet, don't know if it's because of the holidays. I am currently a junior so by the summer I'll be a senior. Would it be possible to apply next year for an internship for summer 2010 if I am graduating in May 2010?
