Ive been in a client facing role for the majority of my professional career and also have found great success and reward in political roles in my prior University setting - these roles have taught me much about human interaction, interpersonal skills, and connecting with people. At Goldman, my goal was to connect with clients to build strong lasting relationships and know and understand their financial dreams and financial struggles. My goal was at chip away at the outer shell and have him or her, over time, divulge the deeper motivations driving their financial dreams - the white picket fenced retirement home they dreamed of buying, the scary burden of their second child's college tuition, the desire to increase their risk appetite to match capture the upside of the market, and so on. In a way, I'm constantly interviewing, asking questions, and peeling away the layers of my client to get to the core - all interpersonal skills that will be useful in the Bureau. I have a deep interest in profiling, interviewing, understanding human conditions, and personal motivations and know I can be an effective agent in questioning, interviewing, interrogating, and connecting with the person at hand.
