Received an invite for a superday very quickly after applying to Goldman. Recruiter never sent me the zoom password and then the password failed to work so everything started a full 15 minutes late. Interviews went great including a “they’ll definitely be a second round” but then I received the rejection email the next day. Do we think the tech issues played into that significantly or just my interview not stacking up to other candidates?

Wow. Same thing happened to me. And my first interview was literally over the phone doing scenario based questions (which was really hard to Show them my thinking, but still managed) second was all zooms, super day crushed it then got a rejection letter. Don’t understand it either, but going to take it as a learning experience and apply again in 6 months. If you want to prepare together feel free to hop in my DMs. All my best!

1.5 years ago I advanced to final round at GS, pulled out all the stops, and was very confident I’d get it. I didn’t. Fast forward to now when I’m interviewing, I could see that I made so many mistakes: not being polished, not thorough enough, etc. in the past. My interviewing skills and confidence is just on another level now (with results to show), and I totally see why I didn’t do well 1.5 years ago. Sometimes you think you crushed it but you can’t know until you have improved.

Can anyone provide insight into IA roles for credit unions and insurance companies? Been interviewing and I’m unsure. For the credit union, I would be the only IA as it’s a new role they’ve created - they haven’t had any IA’s in the past as the duties were shared between depts. I would report directly to CEO. For the insurance company. The department consists of 3 senior auditors and a manager. I would report to the manager. They both seemed to be slower paced than PA which is what I want.

What % of your stock investment do you trade on frequent basis? e.g., out of my $100k invested in stock market, 90k is in index funds / ETFs for long term. I was wondering if the remaining 10k I have in “trends-driven” fund or stock (e.g., Zoom, RIOT, MGNI) should I trade frequently (sell at high, buy again when low..) Will tax implications impact decision / profits?

Okay 🐠 I need your input on two scenarios I have. 1 - Join EY cloud strategy as SM working under two partners and with 2 other SMs (will be partners in the next 2-3 years) that I know well; with a fast track to partner for myself. Or 2 - Join BCG DV at EM level and work towards partner level there. Completed final interview last week and got positive feedback. I don’t think there’s a wrong answer, but I have the EY offer in hand, comp difference is negligible.
