    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in November 2019.

    Interview

    Just ask a coding problem, no time for follow up. It's very formal and ordinary. It was my first interview and the interviewer comfort me that it is ok to be nervous. (why I need to type 30 words here, I don't have much to say)

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    I had three on-campus interviews. Each of the first two interviews were with two engineers, where each asked me a technical question. They were very responsive and had a lot to say about Bloomberg.

    Overall this was one of my favorite interview processes because I felt that I was being considered holistically and was able to have extensive conversations with interviewers.
