On a day to day basis, we took part in various sessions where different engineers and quants from a range of different areas of the business explained in detail the ever-changing role of technology in their specific function. We were also given a team project in which we had to complete a python based task using some of Goldman Sachs' internal APIs.
We had many talks by professionals in many sectors and divisions. We spent the first week getting acclimated. We learned about Goldman Sachs from the bottom up. We learned how Goldman functioned, how they make money, and where each division fits into the bigger picture. We spent both weeks networking and learning. The second week was focused on group projects and teamwork, with more free time to network with the other interns and to get a clearer insight into the specific divisions.
We had the opportunity to learn a great deal of information through specific training days in the investment banking sector as a whole, as well as into the global markets division. We also visited various desks in the division to gain greater insight, and also received a group assignment.
We attended firm-wide sessions covering the structure of GS, participated in roundtables with senior management, asking questions and learning about their career paths, and attended brief sessions explaining the work of each team. We also developed projects in small groups, which consisted of independent research, interviewing staff at GS and creating a presentation.
Worked on an Engineering project under Global Markets Engineering, in which we implemented a hedging strategy for commodities futures (Strategies) and developed risk management tools in Python and Jupyter Notebook (Software Engineering). Day to day involving working on the project, going to meetings and networking.
We received formal training for one week on financial products such as the different asset classes and how they intertwine within a investment bank. We received desk overviews from many different teams that work within Global Markets spanning from Sales, Trading to Structuring. Networking was endless, we were able to build strong connections with employees and engage in fantastic conversations.
As an entire intern cohort, we had a firmwide introduction into the firm where we learned about the different divisions that make up Goldman Sachs. We then split up into our various specific divisions for the rest of the two weeks to learn about them in more detail. We also had financial training on accountancy fundamentals and different valuation methods used in investment banking. There were various case studies that we worked on in groups and then gave presentations on, alongside hearing various talks from senior people in the firm.
Worked as part of a team to design a hedging strategy to lock in the price of a commodity. Interacted with other spring interns and company's employees on a day to day basis. Had the opportunity to attend multiple talks and presentations from teams working on the engineering/technical side of the organisation's activities. Also, had several Hackerrank sessions were I got to improve my programming skills.
Daily activities included financial training with an external vendor, preparing/presenting case studies, attending talks and networking. The programme introduced the cohort to the variety of different teams in IBD at Goldman Sachs and even brought in external speakers such as Deborah Frances-White for skills sessions.
worked on a group project where we implemented a hedging strategy for commodities futures (Strategies) and developed risk management software in Python and Jupyter Notebook. we also had the opportunity to attend numerous presentation and events discussing the firm's roles, opportunities, and values, as well as numerous workshops with the intent on helping individual development
There were multiple Networking sessions, Talks from the senior members and other divisions of the Goldman Sachs family and Workshops throughout the programme. We were supposed to work in teams on a Technical project, which further helped us hone our skills and understand the industrial application of our classroom knowledge.
Had to attend many information sessions about the company's operations and organisational structure. We then focused on the variety of roles in the Engineering Division and how many of them are related to the main business. We were also given a case study about hedging strategies and split up to work in teams in order to produce a project. In the last day of events, we all presented to senior staff.
The role did not have any real responsibilities. This gave me the chance to learn about the business and meet people. We had great training sessions on accounting and finance, public speaking and more. Emphasis was put on networking and we were given two case studies to explore more about bankers role in financing and advisory
The internship was an intense and immerse virtual programme. On any given day, we would have talks from senior leaders all over Goldman, participate in firm-wide programming and hear from MDs who familiarised us with the nature of their work. The afternoons and evenings were then spent doing group preparation for our presentations and individual Summer Interview.
