A summer like no other


Uppers

Great networking opportunities, learning opportunities from the best in the industry, rotational program gives more optionality.


Downers

A lot of emphasis is placed on how outgoing the intern is- candidates cannot be shy.


Advice to Potential Interns

Goldman is a great place to work for sales and trading, but you must be willing to put in a minimum of 12 hours a day, and must be willing to spend time networking as well as just doing work. Good time management and project management are key skills for success.
