Goldman Sachs has been named the most popular investment banking and investment firm to work for at GTI Media’s TARGETjobs National Graduate Recruitment Awards.
The event, which is sponsored by Aviva, claims to be the largest of its kind in the world, with over 80,000 votes cast by students and recent graduates across a variety of sectors.
According to GTI, Goldman Sachs’ win demonstrates that the bank is a well-known and respected employer.
Commenting on the outcome, the firm’s UK publishing director, Chris Phillips, says: “Goldman Sachs should be delighted that, within their sector, graduates hold them in such high regard.”
He adds: “It is difficult to get the recruitment process right but Goldman Sachs really are setting the standards for others to follow.”
The bank is not so popular with blogger, Mike Morgan, who registered the domain name goldmansachs666.com for a blog that continues to criticises the bank and its practices, despite threats of legal action over trademark infringement.
