    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at BlackRock (London, England (UK)) in October 2020.

    Interview

    When applying online, you submit your CV and shortly after you need to complete a "virtual cover letter", which is a HireVue-powered short interview with only two questions. You will have 72 hours to complete such "virtual cover letter" from the moment you apply online.

    I believe that, if you pass, you will be invited to a virtual interview.

    • 1. Why have you chosen to apply to BlackRock and specifically to this division?   Answer Question
    • 2. Tell us about a recent news that you have read and how it impacts BlackRock. (Note: the news does not need to be about the asset management industry; however, you should be able to describe how it relates to BlackRock.)   Answer Question
