Getting Hired in Investment Banking

By Nivine Richie


This video explains how candidates get hired into entry level positions at investment banks like Goldman Sachs. While a big ticket investment banking job on Wall Street isn't for everyone, there are a few lessons that all finance grads can take away:


  1. Internships matter. According to this video, the internship program is the main "feeder" program for their full-time entry level program.
  2. Grades matter. Networking is important, but so is your classroom performance. Paying attention in class and earning good grades is important.
  3. Timing matters. Many offers are awarded by the middle of fall semester for starting employment in June. Waiting until you're just about to graduate may reduce the number of available positions.
