Difficult Interview

Global Data Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
New York, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in October 2010.

Interview Details – Submitted my resume with the career development center at my university. Got an email to set up an interview a few days later. The interview was 1 hour long. It was mostly questions about the industry and my knowledge of the markets in general. I was not asked any behavioral questions. I dressed appropriately, for the interview, a business suit, but the interview was in a skirt that came above her knees, a long sleeve plain shirt, and flats. She did not look as if she had taken much time into trying to make a good impression on the students interviewing.
