Moreover, since the GS A-Level Girl Program, I was attracted to Goldman’s culture; therefore, I motivated myself to apply to the Global Investment Research division for your Spring Insight program.

Case Study: College student who is a leader in her sorority Totally okay! Quantify team numbers, participation rates of events, audience numbers, anything you can remotely attach a number to. The future Eventually, I want to use the finance background this would give me and become an advisor or investor within emerging markets such as Bangladesh due to the wealth of opportunities and I know this firm would give me the required skills.
This mindset has changed over time, because I had the chance to experience other less-challenging fields, such as Human Resource, which I interned in at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, as well as Retail Banking, which I interned in at HSBC.
Since then, I realised that my long-term career needed to be more intellectual, fast-paced and intense than that.In July 2012, I listened to a panel discussion of female MDs in the Fresh Look to Banking Woman Conference, which inspired me that I should not limit my potential when I have not even experienced IBD firsthand.I recognise I am well prepared to work hard, because, from all the challenges I have undertaken, I have always worked for longer hours than what was required.During my internship in different financial institutions, I formed the habit of reading their internal news and got to understand the firm's strategies and goals.From the three different companies I worked for, one investment bank, one retail bank and one accountancy firm, I have gradually seen the direction of the post-crisis transformation in the financial industry.However, on the interview day, I was impressed when I was walking into the Goldman office and reporting to the reception, a Goldman senior employee walked passed me. Such a simple encouragement is what attracted me about your culture, and kept me returning to apply to your IBD Summer Internship.Working for Investment Banking Division is challenging, as I am well aware, yet I have got the right attitude and a well-rounded skill set for what it takes.

If you’re IB, know stuff like DCF, LBO, the financial statements. How I ACTUALLY prepared (by that, I mean I really didn’t prepare at all)So I don’t recommend doing what I did because I don’t think I cared frankly as much as I should have. So the following are some quick tips I’ve learned through my experience about how to hack the process and make it a little easier. Clearly, both interviewees have the same knowledge level. It’s not held against her that she wasn’t asked the harder questions because she did answer all the questions asked of her correctly. I’ve had interviews end with, “Crap I haven’t even asked you about the markets and we need to finish soon.And now, I’m sharing my insights with you (mostly so I don’t need to keep rewriting this over and over again in a million chat boxes). As a result, it takes me 10 mins to rewrite a cover letter each time. 9 times out of 10, networking is the reason someone got an interview. Don’t claim to want a client facing role if you can’t even do this. You really stood out.”So obviously, here are some questions I ask when networking that gives me both good information and aren’t so boring. I really appreciated all your advice and wise words.
