About You

1. To what extent did you enjoy the virtual experience?

The virtual spring internship of Goldman Sachs was a real eye opener into the companies culture. It was incredible to see how committed, engaged the workers are to GS.
Reversely, GS put forward how they encourage employees to be high achiever and performant but also how they focused on their wellbeing.
Overall, the program gave us great insights about the organization, the atmosphere at Goldman Sachs and made us excited to potentially work there.

2. To what extent did you feel valued during your time at the company or firm?

The company valued us in the way that they organized recruiter open hours during which we were only 8-10 interns. These sessions allowed us to discuss openly with the recruiters and ask specific questions about the recruitment.

Moreover, the firm had really put some effort into finding us buddies implicated in our internship that gave us great advice.

Finally, having done the individual project and presented it in front of my buddy was really challenging and empowering.

4. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and information you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?

The virtual spring internship was rather an informative program than a program that really developed my skills.
However, I would say that the individual project and its presentation was a real eye opener into the work that analyst do in Securities. This project really developed my analytical skills and pitch skills.
