Placement opportunities for Pamplin students at Goldman Sachs received a boost last fall, with a campus seminar featuring five alumni working at the investment bank and two student-group visits to its global headquarters in New York City.

The October campus visit of the “largest contingent Goldman Sachs has ever sent to Virginia Tech” marked the “first time a formal session was offered at the university about what it is like to work at the firm and how to work through the application process,” said finance professor George Morgan.

The Goldman team was led by managing director Nick Cullen (FIN ’91) and also comprised Ben Marshall (FIN ’10), T.J. Loeffler (FIN/MKTG ’11), Thorne Michaels (FIN ’13), and Rebecca Wald (FIN/ACIS ’09).

“Goldman Sachs has found the students at Virginia Tech to be extremely motivated, prepared, and well qualified,” Cullen said. “They have the strong presence and confidence that is required in order to deal with today’s leaders of business.”

Cullen added: “As alumni, we were pleased to see such high interest in our recruiting efforts and the quality of the candidates that Virginia Tech is providing. We will continue to expand our recruiting efforts at Virginia Tech.”

Cullen and several other Tech alumni working at Goldman Sachs also met with the Virginia Tech student-investor groups SEED and BASIS during their respective visits to the firm in New York in September and November. They discussed their work experiences and answered questions from the students, who, as members of SEED and BASIS, invest in stocks and bonds, respectively, for the Virginia Tech Foundation.
