Lunchtime Links: Beware the prank Goldman interview invite

eFC logo

Dealbreaker has unearthed what it claims was a 'sick and twisted' spoof interview invitation ostensibly sent by Mark Weber, a Goldman HR VP, to hapless would-be analysts in the US. The invitation informed eager students that they'd been selected for a first round of interrogation at the firm. Sadly, it was followed by an email from the real Mark Weber revealing that the first email was all a terrible lie sent by someone with 'no affiliation to Goldman Sachs whatsoever.'
