    Interview Details

    I received an email from Bloomberg only one day after applying online in order to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview consisted of easy questions about my background along with some simple situational prompts - how would you deal with a hostile client? A few days later, I was invited into the NYC office and sat down for a 2-1 interview. The questions were very similar to the phone interviewer's and I thought it went very well. About a week later, I got a rejection email with little explanation.
