    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (Rutgers, NJ (US)) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I got the on-campus interview from on-campus career fair. The two interviewers are both Phds in science, and working in this position currently. They are super nice to me. All the questions are about algorithms. They asked me write code on a paper at times. If you don't know the answer they'll give you hints. But you still need to know the basics of algorithm and data structures.
