RQA Analyst Interview

RQA Analyst

I applied through college or university and interviewed at BlackRock.

Interview Details – Several days after I submit my resume, they contacted me to a on-campus interview. The interview was nothing weird and the questions should be pretty straight forward if you are major in finance or economics. Later, I was invited to the superday but then they told me that they were not going to hire sophomore. Anyway, the people interviewing me were pretty nice and there were not many brain teasers.

Interview Question – Describe put-call parity   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at BlackRock.

Interview Details – First round on campus interview with an associate and a VP. They started with resume based questions, like what's your favorite class. Later they threw me questions in probability and linear algebra after they found out I am a math major. A week later they flew me to the San Francisco office for a superday. That was 4 back to back interviews with two directors and two managing directors. Mostly technical questions.

Interview Question – Nothing unexpected.   Answer Question
