2015 Summer Internship Kicks Off
The experience of Goldman Sachs summer interns and associates is about more than simply building professional skills. Networking is a valuable part of the program – both with Goldman Sachs professionals and with one another.
Summer 2015 kicked off with casual networking events where interns from across divisions relax and get to know one another.
“We wanted to host fun events to celebrate the start of the summer program and create connectivity across the intern class right away. With more than 1,700 Americas summer analysts and associates from over 200 different universities, events like the ones we just held in New York and Salt Lake City help our interns build important relationships across the firm that they can leverage not only throughout the summer but throughout their careers,” says Kristin from the Goldman Sachs University Relations team.
On June 8, our interns working in New York and New Jersey joined one another at Chelsea Piers Sports & Entertainment Complex where they bowled, played laser tag, climbed on the ropes course and more.
“It was fun to see everyone become friendly, competitive, and energetic after a long day of work,” said Yezy, a summer analyst in HCM. “It was easy for people to have a good time and get to know each other. It can be hard to meet interns working on other floors and this event allowed me to meet many new people.”
On June 2, interns in Salt Lake City were treated to a farmer’s market themed event showing off Utah’s local culinary scene while enjoying hula hooping, portraits from a caricature artist and live music.
“Many of our summer analysts and associates are new to the city they are working in so these events allow them to explore something unique about their summer home. It was great to see our interns enjoying a new experience and taking advantage of the opportunity to connect with their peers,” says Carly from the Goldman Sachs Operations Campus Recruiting team.
Similar events take place in Goldman Sachs offices around the world. We’ll be highlighting these in future blog posts.
