Goldman Sachs to explore strategic alternatives for Marcus…
What you can learn from Goldman Sach’s mistake and apply to your job search today…
Goldman has decided it can’t be the cool kid anymore and run the fintech playground for personal finance for the rest of us. What it failed to realize from the beginning was that cool is not in its DNA. You can hire the smartest people, but if your mindset is not cool to begin with, you will fail.
Is this really you?
Do you see yourself in this story? Maybe you tried the fintech, vc, or startup route, and it’s not working. The IPO is not tomorrow and you are working too hard for the money.
Maybe you really are the conservative person that is better off in a larger firm with a structure already in place. There is comfort and security in numbers. Maybe your spouse was not into your moving to a Fintech, VC, or startup to begin with?
