Final Round Interview for a BlackRock RQA Internship



Hi everyone,

I will be taking part in a final round interview for an internship in BlackRock’s Risk and Quantitative Analysis position. The two interviews will focus on my “motivations for the role, my general knowledge and interest in both BlackRock and the financial markets, and your knowledge of RQA.” Subsequently there will be an hour long exercise.

I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on a particular question that may be posed upon me during the interview? I plan on learning all about the latest news in financial markets and what interests me, and also perhaps risk calculation methods (e.g. how to calculate Beta/Standard Deviation), learn all about BlackRock and then know my CV inside out - Is there anything else I should be aware of?

Second, could anyone describe to me what to expect in this group exercise? I have no idea what to anticipate - Any guide at all would be much welcomed.

Many thanks,
