    Financial Sales and Analytics Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  London, England
    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    There are four stages to apply for this role:
    1. Online Application
    2. Telephone Interview
    3. Panel Interview
    4. Panel Interview with Manager you will report in to.

    The online application is straightforward. Exhibit a keen interest in Bloomberg, Financial Markets and Sales.

    The telephone interview tests your interests of the aforementioned topics and see you can hold a conversation over the telephone. They fire questions in an attempt to make you uncomfortable to test your ability to maintain composure. They ask fundamental technical questions here.

    The Panel interview is with someone form Sales and another from Analytics. They test your technical knowledge here and explore where your strengths/weaknesses lie. They then focus their attention on the answers that you give and drill deeper to identify your expertise on the subject. A sound understanding of financial instruments is an advantage.

    I made it to the third stage and missed out.
