BlackRock SA recruiting (FO positions)



Hey everybody,

is anyone in the recruiting process for a FO position at BlackRock? I’m talking about Portfolio Management, FInancial Markets Advisory, etc. Have you guys heard back from them after you completed the numerical test?

They sent me a message stating sth. like “we are pleased to inform you to proceed to the next round with your application and want you to complete a numerical test” after 4 weeks of no communication. I initially thought that they pre-screened applications and then sent out numerical tests to eligible candidates. However, I’m 100% positive that I passed the numerical but haven’t heard anything since then. Is BlackRock’s process just incredibly slow, or am I dinged?

The question is essentially: How’s your current status with BlackRock?
