    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (Hong Kong (Hong Kong)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and got an invitation for a phone call after 2 weeks (since I wasn't in Hong Kong). They asked me any preferrable time and date for the call, so I said I'm available for 9-12pm for the next week. However, my interview date got scheduled 3 weeks later at 5pm. (wasn't sure what's the point of asking the preferred date/time then). The interviewer was really nice and kind though. Overall it was a good experience.

    Interview Questions

    • The first question was a brief self-introduction. I mentioned several skills that I learned from my previous internship experiences, and the interviewer wanted specific examples of each skillset I've listed and how can they be applied to this particular position. One question I got stuck was "Was there any innovative idea that you've suggested during your previous work?". I wasn't sure of what type of innovative ideas he wanted - if it should be related to the finance or not, etc.   Answer Question

    Interview

    I applied on the Bloomberg website and it took a couple of weeks to hear back from them. Once I did hear back from them, I received an e-mail asking to schedule a phone interview. After that, I received the phone call from New York at the scheduled time. It was all straight forward, but I did not hear back for another two weeks after the initial phone interview. The process was very slow.
