300,000 People Applied To Goldman Sachs In The Past Two Years; 4% Were Hired

From the vampire squid:

“Almost 300,000 individuals applied for full-time positions at Goldman Sachs for 2010 and 2011. We hired fewer than 4% of that population, and, though most had multiple offers, nine out of ten people offered a job with us accepted.”

  1. This is off a financial web site:

    “An attractive young woman walks into a bar. Having already downed a few power drinks, she turns to the man beside her, looks him straight in the eye and says, “Listen here, good-looking, I will screw anybody, anytime, anywhere, their place, my place, in the car, front door, back door, on the ground, standing up, sitting down, naked or with clothes on . . . It doesn’t matter to me. I just love it.”

    The man’s eyes open wide with interest: “No kidding” he says “I’m in investment banking too.”
