Hey!
I have been selected for the assessment center at bloomberg for Global data entry level training programme 2012.
Do you have any advice?
They told me that there will be a General Finance test…have you ever did this before?

Thanks

Also, can you tell me about the next stages of the interview process?

A reply would be incredibly appreciated !!!

Thanks a lot

I took the programming test last night and fml it was hard. What did you two get in that test to get the phone interview. Its looking like i wont. It rated me as profficient but in terms of global and company percentile i was mid 50’s ouch

We have the General Finance test…and I think that it’s not about programming…
@ Shimmi_shammi : did you know something more about the assessment center?

Just a thought for you Ciaolavi,

Have a look at this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bloomberg_Terminal

Guessing they will ask questions on the list of key commands

GOVT - government securities (US treasury and non-US)
CORP - corporate debt
MTGE - mortgage securities
M-Mkt - money market
MUNI - municipal debt
PFD - preferred shares
EQUITY - equity shares
COMDTY - commodity markets
INDEX - indices
CURNCY - currency markets

Sorry Jermaindefoe, didn’t take the promgramming test before my telephone interview. I have applied for Global Data

I asked at the end of the telephone interview, and I was told that there would be general questions on what is going on at the moment (assuming it will largely be based around the implications of the European sovereign debt crisis), questions on bond and equity markets, and general economics questions. I read economics at university, but never did any finance modules so that’s why I’m a bit worried. I think I’m just going to get on investopedia and read up on the basics of stocks and bonds, what a CDS is, an IRS, what the major exchanges are (FTSE, DowJones etc) and have been reading the news regularly…

When is your assessment day Ciaolavi? Mine is this Thursday, so happy to help with what I find out today and tomorrow, but I do work 9-5 everyday so can’t check wikijobs too often

Cheers and good luck to you both

Hi There,

It looks that we gonna see each other on Thursday. I know that the assessment centre will take a whole day almost. There will be introduction to Bloomberg training programme, financial test which I am really concerned about and an interview.
Personally I don’t think they are going to ask us about Bloomberg Terminal commands so there is no point of learning that. Financial test is the thing that worries me the most. If you find any info on that please post. I will do the same

Cheers
