I need someone skilled and realistic (please nosense)


I have a friend that can possibly get me a position into GS but now after reading all the GS forums, I percieve that is a very high end firm.  Now someone like me juggled around firms like Gunn Allen and so forth, what is the best recommendation anyone has to suggest.  In order to really show GS that Iam a good candidate for their firm.  Basically iam completely clueless on approaching a big firm like GS so i desperately need help.  Also I have no book and Im 21, again I have a 99% chance to get in.  So what kind of a position do I ask GS?


Thanks

Ask to be partner.  Anything else would be an insult.

Insist that you get a new mop every six months and that they refer to you as "janitor" and not "night cleanup boy".

NASDy Newbie...please stop it, I just sprayed of load of coffee through my nose onto the computer screen.   Ouch!!!


Just in case this thread is the real deal (which I'm 99% sure it's not)...you would not be 'just realizing' GS is a VERY VERY high end firm if you've been 'juggled' around different firms like Gunn Allen (assuming as a stockbroker of course).  You would be the most ignorant broker I've ever encountered and wouldn't be worthly of GS in the first place.


This is fairly standard knowledge and it's inexcusable for any broker to not know, generally, the relative standing of his/her competitors.


Brother, unless you're the cream of the crop...you're dreaming if you think they'll hire you as a broker.  MAYBE in another role, but I'd doubt it.

Thanks a lot Dude

This can't be a serious thread. 


a.)  If someone you know is in a position at GS to get your foot in the door, you'd know what that position would be.
b.)  If they don't know what that position is or, at least, could be, they're pulling your leg.

If you knew anything about Wall St. You wouldn't have written this!

Nov 7, 2006 12:16 pm

I seriously dont no sh*t about wall st.  I want to learn and explore.  I just dont know where to look or ask.  Dont tell me this is not the place for me because nobody came on to wall st knowing everything.

There's a peckerhead around here who has gone by Put Trader, NASD

Newbie, and many others who claims to know everything.



Of course, he knows next to nothing in reality.

I don't think anyone really would have come down on you the way they did if your initial post had been coherent English.  But the great news is so far in your expolration you've already learned something...and that is to always conduct yourself in a manner befitting someone intrusted with millions of dollars of people's money.


See, your learning already.

Nov 7, 2006 1:32 pm

your = you're

Nov 7, 2006 1:36 pm

intrusted = entrusted

Wall Street...


Look, you have to understand that most people here would give their left nut (if they're male of course) to work at Goldman Sachs.  Do some thread searching and you'll get some good info.  Sorry about the harsh tone of my original post, but you suggested that you've been around awhile (at Gunn Allen etc...) and I was just very confused how you could be in this business and not have some idea of the statue of Goldman.

this guys just busting your guys ball's. i think the thread is a spoof.

Well....assuming your not just pulling our legs here and have a shred of sincerity, then give us your background.  Were you in a secretarial position at Gunn Allen?  Also, you really should work on your writing skills (not that I'm the Grammar Police or anything ).  Using the word no in place of the word know comes across really po-dunk and unless you're an Edward Jonsie out in the Bayou, it won't fly with clients...especially of the Goldman Sachs variety.


Good luck.  If you want to learn this is a good place.  First lesson is to forget about Goldman Sachs until you finish up that Harvard MBA...then get back to us.

I like the idea of a statue of Goldman, complete with pigeons. And you're right I would give your left nut to work there. 


I also think this thread is a spoof.

Nov 7, 2006 4:43 pm

How can it not be?  Maybe it's a poor-spelling version of incredble hulk???

Nov 7, 2006 6:34 pm

I'll say this about Goldman Sachs, the avg. partner there makes $7 million a year
