Role Description

A week where we go an in-depth feel of the company values and culture by interacting with employees at Bloomberg in a series of engaging sessions comprising: workshops, hands-on demos and exercises, panel discussions, and team projects

    Overview

  • 1. Please give an overview of the insight and what was involved on a day-to-day basis.
  • The insight took place over a period of a week. The schedule mainly comprised workshops, where current employees took us through technical sessions eg. Global Data ESG data, with time at the end left for Q&A. At the beginning of the week, we were put into groups within which we would work on a group project. Throughout the week, we got to work on our projects and presented on the final day.


    Skills

  • 3. What was it like understanding all about the business and potential roles available?
  • It was very enlightening. The insight week mainly focused on the Global Data and the Analytics and Sales teams. We had sessions on either of the departments every day of the insight week. These sessions were facilitated by employees in those departments. They explained the work done by their departments and broke down the different roles. Their explanations were very clear, and were more than willing to respond to all the questions that we had.
