Goldman Sachs (GS), a leading global investment banking, securities and investment management firm, has announced its Spring Internship Program called “The Africa Initiative.”
This program is for undergraduate students studying in Ghana, Nigeria and South Africa. If studying in a Ghanaian or Nigerian university, you must currently be in the first year of a three year course or the second year of a four year course. If studying in South Africa, you will be in the second year of a three year course or third year of a four year course.
In order to provide program participants with an insight into our businesses and culture, program attendees will be flown to London to spend up to 10 days in our offices during April 2007. The program features seminars, divisional rotations, interesting assignments and a range of social events.
High-potential participants will be invited back to the firm the following year for an 8-10 week fully-funded internship during June/July 2008. The purpose of these internships are to identify strong candidates to whom we may ultimately extend fulltime Analyst offers in 2009.
There is a two-step application process – both stages must be completed:
- Step 1: Apply online (www.gs.com/careers) and upload you CV and cover letter. Select Internship = New Analyst.
- Step 2: Visit the Upcoming Events in Europe page and register using the “Goldman Sachs Africa Initiative” link where you will answer two essays:
- 1. What are your key strengths? (300 words)
- 2. Why should you be selected for this program? (300 words)
The application deadline is 31 January 2007. Please note that you must be studying at a university in South Africa, Ghana or Nigeria to apply to participate in this initiative. For additonal information, please click here
