Did an interview with Goldman. It’s funny that out of all the questions, the two interviewers didn’t even ask “why do you want this job”. I guess they think everyone wants to go to Goldman.

OP - “Why do you want this job?” is not a common question among skilled interviewers. It is an invitation to provide the usual b/s, and hence only tests the low level skill of low level bs’ing. Waste of time in an interview. (And if you think it weeds out the mismatches, well that should have already been done by a decent HR function, so as not to waste my time).
