Got an interview coming up for Goldman Sachs. It’s a pre-recorded video interview. Any tips or anything to share about the company? (It’s for one of the Early Careers skill sets, meaning the interview will be for multiple positions)

Interviewed 2 years ago and it was one shot only (no do-overs). Focus on giving a thoughtful answer that addresses the prompt + your logic. GS values integrity, escalating to peers/managers in times of crisis/uncertainty, and having a broader perspective on your actions (who will this effect, how will this effect them, how can I minimize damage to the firm, etc.)

Happy to help. Would also note that GS looks for people who are driven not just to learn but to overcome and learn from failure, too. Best wishes for your interviews!

Look up the how to guides for recorded interviews - they use some kind of software to do an initial screen before anyone actually looks at the video, and from my understand it analyses thing like eye tracking and body language. You’ll want to make sure you check all the boxes to get pst that initial screen

For some of these recorded interviews, sometimes they let you get 2 attempts. As a hack, what I did was use the first attempt as preparation (take notes, gather your thoughts, time your answer), then utilize the 2nd attempt to actually answer.

Recently passed interviews and got an offer, but I'm not too excited about the role and the overall package. Will recruiters in the future be able to see that I already had an offer? Would that impact my chances to get an interview if I applied for other roles? I would love to work for Google at some point, but might want to wait for a role that's a better fit. Or should I just accept it to have a foot in the door and try to transfer after I joined? Many thanks for your advice

Would super appreciate any reccos. Hoping to connect with them again for a new project.

Does two years interning and a masters degree warrant skipping a junior planner position as asking for mid?

I have held two interns positions that have each lasted a year (wasn’t able to take on full time because of graduate school). But now that I have a degree and two years of experience (I was acting as a junior in both roles) I was thinking about applying for a mid-level position but nervous since I haven’t officially held a junior planner title yet. Thoughts?

I wanted to get some peoples’ thoughts on interviews. I haven’t been having much success. Maybe will hear back from 10% of the places I apply to. Gotten to final stages of a couple and feel like I’ve been runner-up or barely lost out two or three times. I keep trying but I can’t say my confidence isn’t affected or it isn’t a blow to self-esteem. I’m generally a straight shooter and maybe I’m just not playing the game. I wonder how many people embellish or outright make stuff up to get a job.
