    Overview

  • 1. Please give an overview of the insight and what was involved on a day-to-day basis.
  • Over the week we were acquainted with all the different departments of Bloomberg such as Global Data and Sales and Analytics. Every day we had sessions with people from these different departments. We also had sessions where we learned skills such as navigating and using the Terminal and answering clients on their issues. We were also given a project to work on as teams, for which we were allocated time every day.

    Business Insight

  • 3. What was it like understanding all about the business and potential roles available?
  • That was the whole point of the week so in that sense it was perfect. Interns learned about all aspects of Bloomberg. No prior knowledge was needed. Some of the successful interns from the insight week got an offer for a fast route to summer internships.

  • 8. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Bloomberg
  • Make sure that you prepare very well for the video interview stage. There is a big chance they might throw you a curveball question. The real interview stage was very pleasant since they want to find out mainly if you are a good fit for the role - competency-based questions. For Day 1 it would be hugely beneficial to have already done the BMC certificate. If you have not, they will give you access to it a couple of weeks before the insight week - do it. Additionally, there is a course called Terminal Basics, which is amazing if you have not worked with the Terminal in a long time. Overall, do not be nervous as everyone is very supportive, no prior financial knowledge is assumed and it is a fantastic place to experience!
