Aggies Score More at Goldman

USU Interns at Goldman Sachs

USU Interns at Goldman Sachs

When Goldman Sachs opened a presence in Utah in 2000, few imagined that in a short time the Salt Lake City office would be the firm’s second largest office location in the Americas.

And the Goldman workforce of more than 1,600 in Utah means career opportunities for Huntsman students. This summer, 18 of the 240 summer interns in Salt Lake City were Utah State University students. Huntsman finance professor Paul Fjeldsted, himself an alumnus with more than 20 years of professional experience on Wall Street, is happy to see his personal encouragement to his finance students begin to pay dividends. “I just think this is such a great opportunity for our students, to work for one of the premier financial services companies in the world, right in our own backyard,” stated Fjeldsted. For Goldman, as for many other large firms, internships are the way to determine future hires. “We treat our internship recruiting process very seriously because the summer internship program is a major feeder for full-time opportunities at the firm,” noted David Lang, head of the Salt Lake City office for Goldman Sachs.

"It is exciting to see 18 USU summer interns at Goldman. I would love this kind of momentum to continue." - Brian Broadbent '93

Brian Broadbent, a Huntsman School alumnus who has been with Goldman for over 20 years, recently moved offices from Manhattan to Salt Lake. He has been a vocal proponent inside Goldman to hire more Aggies, and firmly believes USU students can compete with any other candidates. “It is exciting to see 18 USU summer interns at Goldman. I would love for this kind of momentum to continue,” said Broadbent.
