250,000 Millennials Were Tired Of Being Broke AF And All Applied For Jobs At Goldman Sachs

If you thought nailing down a summer internship or associate position was hard, you have no idea how hard it is for Millennials with their sights set on Goldman Sachs. After living through the Great Recession and being burdened with the highest amount of student loan debt in history, broke Millennials all said screw it and applied for jobs in investment banking. We’re not talking just a handful of applications either – Goldman Sachs received 250,000 applications for summer or entry-level analyst positions, which is 40% higher than the number of applications they received last year.

To every Gen-X’er out there complaining about unemployed Millennial liberal arts majors with no motivation or skills, I’m sorry, but I didn’t hear about a quarter of a million of you applying for jobs with the most prestigious bank in the United States. So sure, some of us are lazy and some are baristas, but that certainly isn’t the defining stereotype of our generation – we’re saddled down with tens of thousands of dollars of student loans and trying to get out from them the only way we know how, which sure as hell isn’t drawing foam leaves in lattes. Instead, you can find us at your investment banks, changing the world, and making a shit ton of money while we’re doing it.
