Financial Software Developer Intern Interview

Financial Software Developer Intern

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Bloomberg L.P..

Interview Details – Telephone Interview - the common Q "why bloomberg?", some Q's about C (stack, heap, what's a pointer), some Q's about Java and preferred Data Structure (mine was HashMap) and then the interviewer asked me if I have Qs for him. It went well and they asked me to come to on-site interview.

Interview Question – I don't remember quite well, there were 2 questions were I didn't know the answer and I admitted that and then I said how I think things should be, and the interviewer told me I was right.   Answer Question

Interview Details – very helpful although at times was hard to understand what was asked since the interviewer wasn t speaking very good english. Excessive questioning about financial markets as well as questions based on scenarios to see how the interviewee would respond. Finally, question regarding a specific company and how it would utilize the services of the firm.

Interview Question – How would company x utilize bloomberg the best   Answer Question

Financial Software Developer Interview

Financial Software Developer

Interviewed at Bloomberg L.P.

Interview Details – Applied online and the process took 3 days. The phone interview was relatively easy. The questions were mainly about C++. Asked what are overloading and overriding, pass by value and pass by reference, what are the default generated methods for a class etc. Some behaviour questions and Java questions. Two days later got the onsite interview invitation.

Interview Question – the unexpected question was "is the vector consecutive". I thought it wasn't as if it were consecutive then we would be able to use pointer arithmetic to iterate through the vector but i haven't seen that. I then was told it was actually consecutive. Just think about how vector is implemented and you won't miss it. The phone interview is easier than I expected. Nothing too difficult and the interviewer is quite nice.   Answer Question
