How an Undocumented Immigrant From Mexico Became a Star at Goldman Sachs

February 27, 2015 (1 min read)

"The overachievers at Goldman Sachs aren’t all the same.  Some have been valedictorians, or Navy SEALs, or the sons or grandsons of the company’s bankers.  Some will stop at nothing to amass a fortune; others are patient.  And at least one was an undocumented immigrant.  Julissa Arce, who turns 32 in March, owed her bright career on Wall Street to fake papers bought for a few hundred dollars in a stranger’s living room in Texas.  Over seven years at Goldman Sachs, she rose from intern to analyst, associate, then vice president, later becoming a director at Merrill Lynch." - Max Abelson, Bloomberg Business, Feb. 25, 2015.
