Below are testimonials from fellow SHPE student members regarding their internship experience at Goldman Sachs.

My name is Ivana Sapon. I am a Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering Major and Science & Technology Studies Minor at Polytechnic Institute of NYU. This past summer I worked for Goldman Sachs Execution & Clearing (GSEC) Operations in the Buy-In and Fail & Exposure Management teams. My key contribution to Goldman Sachs Operations was my ability to use my engineering problem solving skills to mitigate risk for the firm. Senior management and my direct managers valued my ability to make a process more efficient and because of this I was able to add value. As a summer analyst, I was given exposure to all divisions within the firm through learning series, brown bag lunches, one-on-one meetings, and diversity networks. Even though I was not in a traditional chemical engineering role, this internship exposed me to the financial industry and allowed me to leverage a wide range of skill sets. 

My name is Jose Maldonado. I received my bachelors degree in Computer Science at the CUNY - City College, where I am also actively pursuing my masters degree in Computer Science. I had a very positive experience at Goldman Sachs. I felt I was challenged from the first day of my internship to the very last. I was given a great project to work on and was found myself learning numerous new technologies in order to solve real world Computer Science/Engineering problems. In addition to my project, the summer interns would attend learning sessions, which provided insight into how company operates and how the different divisions work together. Working in the financial sector exposed me to many fascinating concepts and skills.
