Some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How do I show that I’m really serious about interning with Goldman Sachs without seeming over confident, cocky?

It’s okay to show that you want the internship you’re applying for but you want to be careful not to overdo it. You want them to feel that it not just benefiting you to work with them but it is actually beneficial to the company. Be honest, articulate, and answer the questions your being asked during the interview simply. You don’t have to try and impress the interviewers with elaborate answers. They’d rather you answer their questions without any fluff. They don’t expect you to know everything, but they want to see how well you can articulate what you do know. As hard as it might be, try just to be natural and yourself.

Do I have to have a specific major in order to have a chance at landing a Goldman Sachs internship?

Majors that involve mathematics, business, economics, computer science, physics or engineering are genuinely preferred but that is not to say that other majors can’t get this particular internship. If you do have a major that has a more art or literature emphasis, you should make sure to take classes or have some aspect of your degree that shows you have developed strong technical and quantitative skills. Another thing to keep in mind is your GPA, an excellent grade point average will definitely help you standout, regardless of your major, because it shows your ability to dedicate yourself to something that’s important to you.

Do seminars really help, and is networking really important?

Yes! Anything you can do to help familiarize yourself with the field your going into or the internship you’re trying to acquire is always a good thing, that you can never had too much of. Networking is wonderful because it enables you to meet other people who can not only help you but who you could potentially positively affect. It’s not always about nailing a job, networking really helps you to build professional relationships that will give you an accessible resource to use when you need advice. Seminars are also valuable because they give you additional instruction, advice, and useful information that help you better prepare yourself for the field you’re trying to get in to. Both seminars and networking are beneficial.
