2019 Internship positions at Goldman Sachs Diversity Exploratory Programs (posted Feb 28, 2018)

Look for a follow-up email/notification about campus visit and information session in April by Goldman Sachs' Investment Banking team.

Timeline 1 (accelerated, not formally marketed, we will discuss timing on campus)

  • Students interested in revenue divisions should target this timeline and start preparation / reaching out immediately
  • 1st round HireVue
  • Those who make it through Round 1 HireVue will be invited for superdays
  • Offers will be made during this timeline
  • Students should only apply in Timeline 1 if they are 100% ready (demonstrate potential/experience/skills) and would be considered competitive at this point in the process for any division
  • For example, VT Investment Banking team will aim to submit high potential candidates as soon as possible who should expect interviews to follow

Timeline 2 (normal): Application opens July 1

  • Wave 1 deadline is Sept 15; students will know by Oct 15 if they have a 1st round HireVue interview
  • All candidates interested in revenue divisions should not apply past this date for those opportunities – everyone should aim to submit applications by July 1st
  • Wave 2 deadline is Nov 15; students will know by Dec 15 if they have a 1st round HireVue interview


  • When students submit applications for employment and events, they should use the same email address – otherwise the system will not pick them up
  • Based on last year, we will try to fill a large chunk in Timeline 1 and Timeline 2 (Wave 1)
  • Students should apply to 3 divisions of their choice - no benefit to only applying to one (e.g. IBD, S&T, and IMD); If you miss out on one, you may have an opportunity to interview with another
