How do I get to interview for a Goldman Sachs Quant position?

Here are some overall points to consider when applying:

Your resume :

  • Data driven achievements are king. QUANTIFY everything you have achieved that relates to marketing
  • Highlight your marketing prowess
  • Don’t ramble. Make every word count
  • Focus upon an achievements/experience/skills resume in that order of importance!

Your cover letter :

  • Why the position and why Goldman (show you’ve done your research!)
  • Why are you perfect for this specific position
  • Why are you awesome generally

Now for the interview :

  • Be charming (read how to win friends and influence people)
  • Be honest (don’t fudge your numbers)
  • Look good (dress, manner, appearance all that stuff)
  • Understand IN DEPTH the role you’re applying to and why it’s important overall to Goldman

If you still feel worried:

  • Practice your interview/application skills on a different company. Apply later
  • If you don’t have enough banking experience experience - go get some at another company/internship
  • Speak to a GS guy

If you’re STILL worried:

  • Don’t apply

I hope this helps!
