    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at BlackRock in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview process went well. BlackRock interviews are different and less structured than other financial services companies. It made it easy to tell my story and control the direction of the interview. I would give myself an A rating for the interview. Unfortunately, when I heard back about a second round, BlackRock informed me that rather than not being selected for a second round, they were not looking to fill the position any more.
