Goldman Sachs is turning to a new platform to help recruit young talent.
The firm on Wednesday launched an advertising campaign on Spotify, the music streaming app, to catch the attention of prospective job applicants.
The campaign will run in both the US and the UK and link back to the firm’s careers quiz, which helps job candidates explore which divisions are best suited to them.
Here’s what the ad says:

Goldman Sachs last September began using Snapchat stories to further its campus recruiting efforts.
The firm has made significant changes to the way it recruits young talent in recent years. In June, it announced it would no longer conduct in-person first-round interviews on campuses, but rather invite students to interview via a pre-recorded video platform called HireVue.
It also introduced new technological tools, including an electronic screening tool for résumés, and change the protocol on in-person follow-up interviews to a more structured approach for consistency.
Last November, Goldman’s investment-banking division unveiled a series of changes designed to retain junior bankers, including promoting them more quickly and encouraging mobility within the firm.
Spotify is widely seen as an initial public offering contender for 2017.
