Dear Amazing and incredible folk of fishbowl app, I received a HireVue interview for the 2022 New analyst position within Internal Audit at Goldman Sachs.

I will be greatly obliged if you could please share your experiences and what kind of questions I should expect. Further, do you get do overs if you start to mess up an answer? I had applied to technology audit so how much should I be prepared to talk about auditing as a service?

Once again any insights will go a long way. Thank you :)

Looking to buy my fiancé the Speedmaster Racing current edition as an engagement watch. It’s listed as $8,750 on Omega’s website; Geneva Seal (in Chi where we live) quoted me $8,200 all-in & they’ll cover tax; my jeweler knows a watch broker in NY who quoted me $8,250. I’m not at all familiar with this process so 1) can anyone recommend a better venue for this purchase? 2) are any of the quotes I’ve gotten so far good? (My friend’s watch guy said brokers can get Omegas up to 36% off retail?)
