good question - also curious 

i know at Blackrock specifically they really encourage employees to switch divisions if they want a change and its relatively easy to do so there

however gs is a different company so interesting to know what their policy is on over there - i would imagine its kinda similar but thats just a guess

Are the interviews structured the same way as if you were applying externally? Also, in your opinion what is the best way to go about expressing interest in another division once eligible to show that team you have the skills, are passionate, etc. ?

There is an internal portal which you apply to any open positions. Sometimes the first round is a phone interview (in person during normal times) and other times it is a HireVue. From there, you could have multiple rounds of interviews or you can have a superday where you meet the whole team in one day, it really depends on that team's preference I think. Interviews are relatively standard, though a little more laid back since you already have the GS stamp of approval.

Best advice I can give is to network with teams/divisions you are interested in. I haven't had an issue getting interviews without networking, but I'm sure it helped for the ones that I did. Working hard and getting strong feedback/reviews from your teams also helps.
