    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at BlackRock (London, England (UK)) in December 2015.

    Interview

    This was for the Summer 2016 Internship Programme in London. I had a pre-recorded video interview which consisted of 3 questions, each with 30 seconds given for preparation and 90 seconds to answer the question. It was important to have commercial awareness in the area, as they required you to be able to put your knowledge into context. I did the interview just over 1 week ago and have yet to hear back.
