    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at BlackRock (New York, NY) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Interviewed for the BlackRock Founders Scholarship in early December of 2014. About 90 students were selected from schools around the country, and on the first day everyone had one 30 minute interview with representatives in their respective divisions - mix of technical and behavioral, depending on the division. Received a call later that day and was invited for final round interviews the next day. Final round consisted of four back to back 30 minute interviews (a total of two hours), with a mix of behavioral and technical questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Walk us through your resume? Why BlackRock? Do you follow the markets? If so, tell me about it? What do you read? What is the last thing your remember reading? Tell me something you're not proud of (a failure)? What is the favorite course you've taken and why was it your favorite? (<- asked twice, two different instances)   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at BlackRock (New York, NY) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Interviewed with a VP and then on Super Day, two MDs and other VPs

    First round is pretty relaxed, mostly behavioral.

    Super Day was more technical, asking about the markets and stories I found interesting. Employees were relaxed, nothing too formal and would ask questions based on previous comments.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing crazy, but absolutely have an answer for a deeper question into anything you mention in the interview.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at BlackRock.

    Interview

    Had a telephone interview with an associate at the firm. Asked basic questions about my background, with some technical questions about Real Estate Investment Trusts, which was on my resume. While I think the interview did not go so well (given that it was my first real interview), in retrospect I think the interview was average in difficulty.

    Interview Questions

    • Be ready to explain all points on your resume. Took me several interviews with different companies to fully get a hold of all of the information and questions they could ask about my resume (and course work).   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at BlackRock (Boston, MA) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Montage Video Interview: pretty basic, questions were straightforward. Nothing to be nervous about. Technology is easy to use. Had some trouble figuring it out at first and called the company for help, but it was resolved quickly. To my understanding there are supposed to be a couple more interviews after, one is another video interview, and the other a superday at their office.
