未来华尔街精英热衷学习编程语言

高盛的暑期项目可能是华尔街最吸引人的实习生计划之一了。从某种意义上来说,这个项目对候选人的甄选标准也预示了银行业未来的人才需求和发展方向。

通常来说,西装革履、名牌傍身才是人们心目中华尔街金融精英应该有的样子。而一项针对最新一期高盛实习生的调查显示,这种传统的银行职员形象可能要逐步成为历史。未来,这家华尔街巨头的办公室里出现更多的可能是身着帽衫运动鞋的程序人员。

本次接受调查的这些实习生来自97个国家,使用的语言种类也高达78种。他们热衷健身和社交,这点与他们的前辈们没有什么区别。但是不同在于,相比于学习中文,他们可能觉得Python编程语言才是更重要,这一比例达到了近四分之三。

其实,整个华尔街现在都在积极招揽各类顶尖技术人员。比如,最新一批晋升的高盛合伙人中就有几位是工程师。而各大银行与金融机构也纷纷携手人力服务机构,要求其帮助培训、评估和推荐机构所需的编程和算法人员。摩根大通也选择改变办公室结构,增加更多咖啡机和茶歇区,同时改变多年以来的企业着装要求,满足技术人员的休息和日常穿着需求。

The summer program at Goldman Sachs is arguably the most prestigious internship on Wall Street. The types of young high-flyers that the bank takes in every year is a good gauge of where the bank, and the industry, is heading.

Judging from a survey of the latest batch of Goldman interns, the future titans of Wall Street will swap pinstripe suits and Prada loafers for t-shirts and hoodies. The stereotypical wardrobe of a computer programmer isn’t merely a fashion choice—the interns, tellingly, are a techie bunch.

The intern class is also cosmopolitan in all the ways you’d expect. They are from 97 countries and speak 78 languages. They are workout junkies and prefer socializing to sleep, much like the Wall-Street types that came before them.

But despite the class’ global roots, Goldman’s interns think learning the programming language Python is more important than learning how to speak Mandarin. Almost three-quarters of interns surveyed think learning Python is the best use of their time, versus 28% who said the same about the world’s most spoken language.

This all comes as banks are trying to attract tech talent to Wall Street. The latest group of Goldman partners included several former engineers. The bank and others, like BlackRock and Two Sigma, have registered for services like HackerRank that train, rate, and match coders to firms. JPMorgan has set up recruitment hubs that double as coffee and smoothie bars, with popcorn machines, and pop-up photo booths. Last year, the largest bank in the US changed its company-wide dress code to business casual, seen in part as a way to make tech-savvy millennials more comfortable.

Goldman’s interns aren’t into Wall Street’s traditional attire, either. The financial world is mostly besuited, and the unofficial rules include great pressure to wear specific kinds of loafers, pair the right colors and fabrics, and monogram cuffs. According to GSElevator, a blog of things (apparently) overheard at the bank, the rules for shoes are simple: “Prada and Gucci; start and end there.”
