Our Employer of the Week series features one company each week that has made a commitment to hiring and supporting veterans. This week’s employer is the Goldman Sachs Group, Inc.

Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. is a leading global investment banking, securities and investment management firm. They offer a wide range of financial services to clients including corporations, financial institutions, governments and individuals.

“Veterans have the experience and abilities to help our economy grow, and the business community is focused on helping them to find the jobs and opportunities that employ their skills,” said Lloyd C. Blankfein, chairman and CEO.

Goldman Sachs is involved with a number of programs and opportunities that reflect this commitment to veterans, including the Goldman Sachs Veterans Network, the Veterans on Wall Street initiative and the Veteran’s Integration Program.

The Goldman Sachs Veteran Network recruits talented military personnel and advises on military-related engagements such as nonprofits, veteran-owned businesses, and the community. Members of this network have the opportunity to make connections and forward career goals but are also able to ensure Goldman Sachs is serving the military community as much as possible.  

Goldman Sachs is the co-founder of Veterans on Wall Street, an initiative that aims to introduce former and current military personnel to financial job opportunities. As part of the initiative, Goldman Sachs hosts symposiums and hiring fairs.

The Veteran’s Integration Program, launched in 2012, provides service men and women the opportunity to develop professional skills and to strengthen their understanding of financial services in order to enter the financial career field. In addition to day-to-day responsibilities, program participants benefit from networking opportunities, a financial marketing curriculum, and mentorship.

Goldman Sachs is also a member of the Veteran Jobs Mission, a coalition of companies that have all made a commitment to hiring veterans. As of March 2018, the Veteran Jobs Mission has hired 455,831 veterans.

These are just a few of the programs and initiatives in place at Goldman Sachs to help veterans discover a career in finances.
