How many job applications did Goldman receive last year ?

Lloyd Fonzie Blankfein

A mind-boggling number!

Goldman Sachs hired just 3% of more than 267,000 job applicants last year, as the firm told investors it’s still the top destination for bankers.

Bloomberg News reports that almost 90% of those offered a position chose to join, CEO Lloyd Blankfein said Tuesday at an investor conference in Florida. 

Goldman Sachs is 'the employer of choice in our industry,' said Blankfein, 60. 'We believe our culture, stability and talent pool are our biggest competitive advantages.'

The bank is showcasing its ability to attract and retain top talent even as compensation has fallen and the firm’s public image suffered in the wake of the financial crisis and congressional probes.
