In today’s age of technology and media consumption, even traditional companies such as Goldman Sachs have had to revise their hiring practices. The investment banking company is now running ads and audio messages on Spotify to attract new hires. While Goldman is in fact an investor in Spotify, this move signals a shift to focusing on younger potential employees.

“It’s a place where talented people from diverse backgrounds come to make a difference — from building a new app to managing an IPO,” the audio advertisement says. “We’re people who have studied the humanities, science, math — you name it.
