Are u referring to the "Pre-recorded Interview" email they sent out? I got it today. Not sure if that's still considered part of the cover letter

If anyone is interested I just finished the first round interview (Alternatives in London), where you get to talk to actual human beings (side note: that's so nice to speak to humans after all of the hireview and other prerecorded interviews...)

You talk 2x30min to different teams and they have a pretty standard list of questions. Each time they read about one of the BR values (innovation, client focused etc.) for 30sec and then ask you a question related to the value. Ex: what motivates you at work/demotivates you? Tell me about a time you had to adapt to someone else? You are working as an analyst and a client is dissatisfied, how do you approach things? etc. And then sometimes they ask you further questions regarding something that you just said. Nothing really specific

Nothing technical either and they presented their teams so I did not really need to have done prior research on those

Good luck to everyone else!

Got a 30-min interview last Friday with a member from the team and got invitation to the final round this Monday. All behavioral questions, related to the role and selected from a list (I think every interviewer has this list). Mostly CV based, asked me about my technical skill and projects. No why BLK why us questions. Thought I was gonna fail as some questions are so specific and I didn't prepare for it, but got passed unexpectedly.

Hi everyone,

I contacted the AMERS recruiting team about my application and told them about the competing offers that I had to respond to by next week and got them to send me an update on all the applications I had for BlackRock. 

So all those of you anxious about results after your final interviews, contact them and tell them you have other offers that you need to reply to by the weekend and they will be happy to share where they are with your application.

Hope this helped! :)

What kind of timeline did they give you, if I may ask?

They didn't give me a timeline in the email per se. They just said they're considering my candidacy for the various roles (corporate speak essentially). Then they said for one of the positions I've applied to, they will be sending me an offer letter with the deadline (yet to receive that). I will update once I do

Recently saw a LinkedIn post where someone accepted their FT 2022 Analyst offer for Blackrock Alternatives

They were not a SA (so not a return offer). I think offers have started to go out, if anyone's interested
