Goldman Sachs Africa Recruiting Programme is an interactive multi-day program for students in Africa graduating in 2022 and 2023. The programme is open to all majors and is designed to introduce students to the financial world through hands on experience.
“The Africa Recruiting Initiative helps Engineering recruit talent from Africa, create global professional opportunities for qualified students and expand our diversity recruiting outreach,” said Lade, a vice president in Engineering Campus Recruiting, who organized the event. High-potential candidates were invited back for a final day of interview prep, application coaching and a technical assessment workshop.
“Whether or not I’m offered an internship, this program has been one of the most fantastic points of my life,” said Emmanuel, a final year engineering student at the University of Lagos, Nigeria. “I really liked the Goldman Sachs people I met and the hands-on support they gave us.”
Last year, the Goldman Sachs Africa Recruiting Initiative stretched across the continent, as the Goldman Sachs contingent visited Nairobi, Kenya for the first time – in addition to cities that had been previously visited, Lagos, Nigeria, and Accra, Ghana. Serving as both an educational and recruiting visit, the initiative provides an opportunity to introduce students to Goldman Sachs’ culture and careers in Engineering. Last year, the team selected 164 students from more than 1,200 applicants to participate.
