    Your Impressions

  • 5. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?
  • I thoroughly enjoyed the insight at Bloomberg - there was a great variety of sessions each day and I learned a lot about the company as well as the industry as a whole The people were always happy to help and were really informative The virtual nature of the insight did mean that it was difficult to network with others and so sometimes I was a little disengaged The Phantom chat task was really enjoyable

  • Yes


  • 8. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Bloomberg
  • Don't worry too much about having a "financial background" Make sure to be genuine, engaging and show a strong interest for the company, it's values and the financial markets. The virtual interview is quite tricky (more so than the face-to-face interview) as it's all automated - make sure you know the company and role really well and be prepared to think on your feet a little
