Bloombergâs careers website contains a wealth of information about each role in the business. For each job, the firm outlines who can thrive in the role, what youâll learn and what you might go on to do. As you research, note down points that will help with your application. Essential information that you can look for pre-interview includes:
For example, the site describes Bloombergâs financial products (which include the famous Terminal) as âcoreâ. Bloomberg is telling you flat out where the money comes from and what one of the most important parts of its business is. You could use this to your advantage when planning interview answers. Itâs also worth researching how the finance, news and media aspects of the business work together.
Make sure you know who Bloombergâs main competitors are. Remember itâs primarily a financial data company, unlike many financial services companies. Look into other financial data providers, such as Thomson Reuters and Dow Jones, and try to determine how their work, products and office culture differ from that of Bloomberg. Remember that Bloomberg will be competing with major news outlets, publishers and broadcasters in its activities too.
