Goldman Sachs retracts job offer over woman's sordid past

Multinational banking firm Goldman Sachs have revoked a candidate’s job offer after discovering she had previously worked in porn.

A woman using the name Shizuka Minamoto had an informal job offer from the Japanese branch of the bank, but had the offer withdrawn after it was discovered she had not been truthful about her past during the interview stage – The Independent reports.

While the code of ethics at Goldman Sachs does not prohibit former porn stars from gaining employment, they do state an offer can be withdrawn if it is revealed a potential employee has falsified aspects of their CV.

Minamoto’s eyes had been blacked out in the promotional materials associated with the films she starred in on DMM.com and Amazon.co.jp, to protect her identity after she started job hunting.

She was found to have taken part in several films while at university.

Neither Minamoto or Goldman Sachs have commented on the issue.
