    I applied online. I interviewed at BlackRock (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    There was an online cover letter following initially sending off the CV. Went to a BlackRock campus event prior to gain extra knowledge but most could be found online anyway. Would recommend practising before. 2 questions asking you the basic stuff you'd put on a cover letter anyway.
