1. Speak on record to the press about a company you are interviewing for a job with.

Seems like a great way to get your internship application rejected faster than you can say "I want to do God's work."

Huh? You guys are referring to Nicole Zenel's comments?

I would agree that it's smarter to keep your mouth shut, but I think what she said is EXACTLY what GS wants to hear.

I think all banks prefer people who maintain as low a profile as possible.

I remember reading this and thinking that she's one of the best reasons to go visit MIT Sloan.

A wee bit overboard, it's not good to be so vocal about the company you plan / are working with.

The other incidence I remember, and which must have been mentioned in this forum elsewhere, is about NYU Stern's Prof Galloway and his (in)famous email :-D

It's best to resolve things in person, face to face and not always on email.

I'm partial to curly hair, what can I say.

By the way, how are things turning out for you? Your testimonials were a key factor in my decision to use Knewton.

Things are going good for me. I think I'm finally ready to submit some applications next Fall. I hope Knewton was everything you had hoped for.
