A financial background is not necessary. Your area or major of concentration is less important to us than your potential. Whether you’ve distinguished yourself in economics or history, the next phase of your career will be shaped by your energy and vision. We encourage you to apply, provided you share an interest in the financial markets and have demonstrated strong academic performance and professional drive.


Getting to know us is essential. Our recruitment process is built upon our belief that a candidate’s understanding of the Goldman Sachs culture is as important as the skills and talent she or he can bring to the firm. Explore, consult with alumni and, if possible, talk with your classmates who have interned with us.


Our interview approach allows us to introduce you to many of the professionals with whom you may eventually work, and it enables you to make an informed decision about a career at Goldman Sachs. Your first interview with us will primarily focus on your past experiences and accomplishments and whether or not you are a fit with the firm. Second round and any subsequent interviews will be more technical in nature and we will continue to assess your compatibility with the firm.



We provide our new analysts with the tools necessary for professional growth and career advancement. As a new analyst, you will learn a great deal about the firm and how we do business. You will gain the skills and knowledge necessary to support our businesses, and you will have unlimited access to the training and guidance to help you prepare for the next level.

Build Your Network

The analyst experience fosters the opportunity to connect with people who can help guide your career. Here you will build your professional network and interact with colleagues across divisions and regions. We have mentor programs, employee networks, clubs and access to external professional organizations that you can join.

On The Job

You will quickly become an integral member of the team with your own responsibilities. Regardless of which area or business you join, you will be working directly with internal and external clients side-by-side with the experts in our firm.



Throughout the analyst years we provide you with ongoing developmental assignments and exposure to multiple disciplines that will supplement your day-to-day responsibilities. Goldman Sachs has a flat organizational structure, so it’s difficult to identify a typical career path. The breadth and depth of our firm provide you with a host of opportunities beyond the analyst position. Our formal mobility process encourages you to explore these opportunities both within and outside of your division and office location.


We created Goldman Sachs University to help you at each stage of your career. Upon joining the firm you will receive formal training followed by division-specific or department-specific training. You will also receive ongoing training, based on your specific skill needs and interests, to bolster your professional development through learning in the workplace. We develop programs in a variety of innovative and challenging formats to guide you through everything from leading a client presentation for the first time to taking on new management responsibilities.


Analysts are formally evaluated as part of the firm’s annual Performance Review Process, which includes a self assessment as well as input from peers, managers and internal business partners. You will also participate in the Personal Development Planning process. Based on formal and informal feedback and your individual interests, this process helps you to establish your career goals and identify developmental opportunities within the firm.
