I don't think it really matters, but The Goldman Sachs Group Inc sounds douchey.

dont write that long ass name on there, everyone knows what Goldman Sachs is.

I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

"SECfinance, quarterback, THE Goldman Sachs Group"

you sound like someone who goes to THE Ohio State University

I can't stand that and I'm not even an OSU guy.

Ex. Writing 'The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc.' instead of just 'Goldman Sachs' on your resume.

Sure. And if you went to school at Stanford for example, make sure to write its full name too as The Leland Stanford Junior University. Have to be consistent...bankers love that attention to detail.

Not sure if you're serious, but in the HBS resume books they just write Stanford University.

haha alright already!! Enough, I'm sorry!!

I'm going to disagree a little and say that it's a judgment call. "The Goldman Sachs Group Inc." does sound douchey, but for a boutique, if it's colloquially known as "Smith Banking", you might want to tack on the LLP or whatever.

GS should be written on a resume as "Goldman, Sachs & Co."

Actually, it should be written simply as GS. That way, if the interviewer asks, "What's GS?", you can stare at them like they're retarded and then shout, "GOLDMAN! FUCKING! SACHS! EVER HEARD OF IT?!"

I guess if you were a GS & Co. employee - but that is the US Broker Dealer only. If you worked abroad or for their Bank, then you were not a Goldman, Sachs & Co employee. GS Co is just one of many entities under the parent.

For historic reasons (at least in the US, no idea about intl CVs), former/current employees generally use what I wrote, despite the top level public entity being The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc.

I also agree you should write GS. If the interviewer doesn't know what it means, thank them for their time and leave.

Jul 27, 2012

Actually GS should just be written as The Firm.

if you like it then you shoulda put a banana on it

Jul 27, 2012

I would advise you to keep in the top line both your function and the firm's name

e.g. "Grand Keymaster and Gatekeeper, Knight of the Brazen Serpent" .
