Meet Our People: Phyllis
Phyllis, an analyst working in Hong Kong on the Equity Capital Markets team in the Investment Banking Division, talks about the interview process, getting started at Goldman Sachs, her volunteer work, and more. Here are some highlights from her profile:
"I was an Economics major with a minor in Psychology and Mathematics at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire."
"Working in Equity Capital Markets, I feel like I am at the forefront of the Asian markets. I was involved in several very exciting transactions here in the past year."
"When I first joined the firm, I was very impressed by how the people in my team helped me get up to speed. My team members were extremely nurturing. Instead of just giving me instructions to follow (which would have been the fastest way to get work done), they patiently spent time with me, going through the backgrounds and rationales of the transactions."
"I have participated in several Community TeamWorks events, both in Hong Kong and in New York when I was in training. I am always amazed by the program. People take it very seriously and are willing to make time for it, even on weekends."
"Last summer, I spent time with some primary students at the Outward Bound leadership program in Sai Kung, in the Hong Kong countryside. Community TeamWorks is something that I look forward to every summer—it takes you out of the hectic work schedule and allows you to make a social impact."
