The best aspects of the internship were that I had the opportunity to create real work senior leaders would see, work with managing directors day to day on projects, receive constant feedback from my supervisors, and get to work with excellent people who I truly enjoyed everyday.
Sometimes the hours on a 6-11 hr day seemed very long, but that comes with the responsibility of this internship.
Advice to Potential Interns
Goldman was amazing in that they gave me many opportunities to network and directly learn from senior leadership like managing directors in my division. In addition, I was treated as a full time employee would be and given real responsibility--not simply internship filler work. Goldman's culture is also very open and feedback oriented, helping me to know how I was doing throughout the program and what I could improve upon.
