Talent is the most important asset we have. It's not just something we say but a fact that drives our performance and our decisions every day. In all Goldman Sachs hires, we look for individuals who will bring their intelligence, energy and dedication to bear on our clients' most significant problems. And we continually assess and refine our practices to make sure we can fulfill this goal.


Over the past year, we have strengthened our focus on presenting ourselves as one firm. By doing this, we interview for the firm first and for individual businesses second—ensuring that we don't miss out on talent by defining our criteria too narrowly.

This new firmwide approach has allowed us to streamline our recruiting efforts through a more closely coordinated global process.


Recruiters and other Goldman Sachs professionals work together to give recruits the best and most accurate perspective on the career opportunities Goldman Sachs has to offer. Both cost-effective and efficient, this new approach helps us reach a diverse pool of candidates and seek the best person for every job at Goldman Sachs.
