Financial Sales and Analytics Interview

Financial Sales and Analytics

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Bloomberg L.P..

Interview Details – Applied through my school's network. About two weeks later I received an email saying I was selected for a phone interview. My original scheduled time for my phone interview I was not contacted. The HR contact told me she had to leave early but she did not notify me before hand. The next day I had my phone interview and it was a generic 15 minute personality interview. I was then contacted through my school that I had an on campus interview. It was a 2:1 interview where I was asked about my sales experience and my financial knowledge. Also gave me a situational question where I was asked which client I would help first and why.

Interview Question – Describe Fed Tapering and the current government shut down to a seven year old   Answer Question

Financial Sales and Analytics Interview

Financial Sales and Analytics
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in March 2013.

Interview Details – They asked me to walk through my resume quickly then moved on to standard Sales questions. How did I overcome a specific sales scenario, what was the most difficult sale, why do I like Finance, discuss a current event in finance. I don't think it was too difficult but you still need to be prepared for those questions because they're practical and similar to real life examples.

Interview Question – Discuss a current event in the past 24 hours.   View Answer

Financial Sales and Analytics Interview

Financial Sales and Analytics

I applied online - interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in January 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online, was contacted by HR, and had a phone interview several days earlier. It was a very basic interview - i.e. "tell me about your resume, why sales, why Bloomberg." There was not much more to it than that. I was asked to come in for an in-person interview, but declined as I was interviewing elsewhere, and was not very interested in the position.

Interview Question – There really weren't any difficult/unexpected questions. Just be able to explain why/how you may be successful in sales, and how this position fits into your career aspirations.   Answer Question
