Goldman Sachs Hiring Process for India

Hiring Process
Goldman Sachs has been recruiting in India at an accelerated pace. Because positions in the Bangalore and Mumbai offices require a range of skills and experience, India can be a launch pad to working in other offices around the world. As with all of our employees, you will have access to career mobility within your division or in another division or location. And our India offices provide the opportunity to take on more responsibility early in your career so your success can grow alongside the firm’s.

While the interview process may seem lengthy, it has many advantages. It helps us to determine if you are a good fit with Goldman Sachs. It is also your opportunity to see if Goldman Sachs is right for you, and we encourage you to ask questions of us. The benefit is that once you start, you know you’re working in the right place.

For Interns, New Analysts and New Associates:
We offer student internships as well as full-time positions across a majority of our divisions in India. Goldman Sachs is committed to helping graduates prepare for a successful financial career. We encourage students to intern with us based on their area of interest, and summer interns are frequently offered full-time jobs. We also visit a large number of colleges across the country, looking to hire students for various divisions across the firm.

Goldman Sachs looks for candidates with well-rounded résumés that include a strong academic background, extracurricular activities and community work. During the interview process, we look for candidates who display excellent communication skills, maturity and a take-charge attitude – team players with a passion for excellence. Full-time positions are offered a year in advance; therefore, we assign a Goldman Sachs buddy to each graduate who accepts a position. This buddy stays in touch throughout the year and is available to answer questions. We also invite new hires and their families to visit our offices on Parents Day and to meet with alumni and senior management.

The process:
• Goldman Sachs occasionally gives campus presentations prior to the scheduled recruitment day. These are good opportunities to learn about the firm and see what areas interest you.
• On recruitment day, visit the Goldman Sachs presentation at your campus and bring your résumé.
• Interviews and any necessary tests are conducted on campus.
• Offers for internships and full-time positions are extended the same day.

For Experienced Professionals:
Goldman Sachs finds qualified candidates through recruitment agencies, employee referrals and internal and external online job databases.

The process involves multiple rounds of interviews with the hiring managers and their teams.
