    Interview

    You are required to submit the virtual cover letter within 72 hours of turning in the online application. The cover letter consisted of two behavioural questions recorded through the HireVue software. They allow for practice questions, but you cannot have any redos or second takes of the real questions.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BlackRock (San Francisco, CA (US)) in October 2020.

    Interview

    I completed the Hirevue and then around a month later I was invited to a final interview round as part of the Fast Track to Fintech program. There were two technical interviews and one behavioral, each 45 minutes long. The technical interviews involved answering conceptual questions related to skills on my resume, data structures, and OOP, in addition to a couple of programming exercises. I received an offer around a week after the final interview.

    It was all right. 1st round was 3 questions. Mainly software engineering questions though. Needs more data science questions since that was the job description. I don't much about second or the next rounds.
