Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BlackRock.

Interview

First round interview followed by final rounds. Required virtual cover letter in the form of a video after online application submission. Process was very fast, first round and final round was in the same few days. Met with two people during the first round and four during the final rounds. Only the final rounds took place at the firm. Everyone was very nice. Not very technical. All technicals about investments/market/investing.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BlackRock (New York, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Longest part of the process was between sending in application online and hearing back for the interview. I had 3 back-to-back in-person interviews, 30 min ea, at office; suspect it was a shorter process than most other reviews here because they were hiring off-cycle instead of in a cohort.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at BlackRock (Newark, DE) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by 4 interviewers, including 2 analysts, one associate, and one vice president. The whole interview process took about 2 hours, and each for 30 minutes. They all firstly let me do a self-introduction. Then, they asked several finance-related questions, such as durations, bonds, and interest rates. The position I applied is about the green package, and one of the interviewer told me that the candidate for this position had to be very hardworking and quick-learning.
