Consulting Exit Opportunities

Trader interviews at Goldman Sachs? I’ve never done a trading/finance interview in my life, not seeing much online, not sure what types of things to expect

Considering that many banks are trimming their trading desks, if possible I’d focus on the sales units. You can’t automate a relationship holder, but sure can automate a trader...

There’s a ton on line for trading interviews. Expect heavy quant/market related questions. Do you know what desk it’s for? Or is it just a general “sales and trading” position. Find out what the exact role is and maybe we can help better

I didn’t get any technical question besides asking my background and examples of my proactiveness. It was a sales and trading interview with Goldman

I’m not sure you’ll find a ton of advice here: consulting to trading isn’t a common exit.

Agree with C2. Was at a bank and while their energy trading is still steady, every other trade area had been reduced. Moreover, to minimize the same risk encountered in 2008, the bank has a middleman between the traders and customers.

Amid all the Covid-19 issues and lay offs. It’s sad to see how very loyal hardworking employees are being treated. The truth about it is most consulting businesses will rather lose people than money. My only 2 cents is work hard at whatever firm you are right now, network and build your own product or service offering on the side. Most of us can honestly we are just being distracted by the titles and huge pay checks that can be taken away when you wake up in the morning. Contd

Trying to make it easy for client to navigate long dropdowns in excel. I have a list of options in excel (1000 options) which feeds into dropdown choices per row (multiple rows) - this is needed for data validation This will be given to client to fill... 1000 is too long too scroll through... but also need to protect and validate the choices... Is there excel functionality to search through the drop down list or something similar to make it manageable for the client to complete?

Our company usually does performance evaluations in June of each year. Our pay philosophy is not clear. We usually give a COLA in January each year, somewhere around 2% and if an employee performed well, they get above the 2%. I have suggested we change our process to have a clear pay philosophy with increases tied to performance, with goals tied to overall goals of the organization. What is your process? Are you doing performance evals during COVID?
