When I came across this Forbes magazine article my first thought was, what a lucky student!
They land a prestigious internship on Wall Street at a major investment bank.
Then after they successfully complete this internship they get a job offer to join the bank after they graduate college.
This is great on so many levels – especially because it allows the student to return to college for senior year to focus on academics and not have to have the pressure of a job search to deal with.
Here’s a bit of what the author of this Forbes journalist has to say about accepting a job offer after completing your dream internship:

What should you do if you get an offer right after an internship at Goldman Sachs?
Well, firstly, congratulations are in order. You’ve made it through a very selective process, not just once (getting hired as an intern), but twice (demonstrating over a ten-week internship that, in the eyes of the firm, you have what it takes to succeed as an analyst).
If you enjoyed the work you were doing over the summer, liked the people and the organization, then you should accept. Immediately. Then go enjoy your final year of college with the warm, fuzzy feeling that comes from knowing you have a great job to go to when you graduate.
What if you’re not so sure?
