They expected me to have done some research on the culture at bloomberg.

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in May 2014.

Interview Details The whole process was not very stressful. I really enjoyed people at Bloomberg, had great conversations along the way. It felt that I was repeating my self during all interviews. Final stage was very high-pace, covered twice as many questions compared to the previous stages.

Interview Question – Hardest questions were during final interview. Majority of questions were sales-situation questions, such as: imaging arriving at your clients office and seeing 50/50 Bloomberg and Reuters terminals, what would you say to a client, imagine there are only Reuters terminals, what would you say then. Who are the customers, what a bonds, and tell me 3 adjectives that describe you .   Answer Question

Bloomberg Analytics and Sales Interview

Bloomberg Analytics and Sales

I applied online and interviewed at Bloomberg L.P..

Interview Details The phone interview was fairly basic with a HR representative just a little bit about me and nothing too unexpected.

The second interview expanded on this phone interview. Was a hard style interview with many technical questions, and where you are unsure they try to press you on the issue.

Good to able to think on your feet and have knowledge on international financial markets.

Covered expected behavioral questions on why you want to work for Bloomberg, this position specifically, and what makes you a good candidate.

Interview Question – Technical question on credit default swaps   Answer Question
