I applied to FMA and Alternatives (PEP). Yeah no word from them, but I checked the box for Founder's Scholarship which I thought would be "accelerated"


Aug 16, 2019 - 8:26am

I did! Still haven't heard anything from them though, pertaining to first round interview decisions


Aug 16, 2019 - 2:24pm

lets hope this process speeds up. A good friend of mine told me that BLK is particularly slow with this king of shit.


Aug 19, 2019 - 4:20pm

Would you say it was all behavioral +resume? I have a first round for BAS Alternatives.


Aug 20, 2019 - 12:25am

Honestly for me it was more technical/resume questions than behavioral but most of the technicals were follow up to what I said. So like i was asked what was going on in the markets and they would follow up with a few technicals based on what I said

Go a First Round for FMA today, so my guess is BLK starts regular recruiting in the Fall.

Hi so this summer I interned at BlackRock in their Core Portfolio Management (CorePM) Fixed Income and thought to give you an update...
- First round is rolling right now!!! They will either do it online (virtual) or flight you out to the site. Last year they flew me out for first and final round
- Final round you'll be meeting a bunch of people that will interview you, typically from 3-6 (or more) and back to back (each interview is about 30mins)

Founder Scholarships is for Black, LGBT, Hispanic, or Disabled. You will need to pass the interview first and then sign on to the offer to be considered for the scholarship, then you'll have to pass the scholarship interview round again to be awarded $17,500. Just a caveat, BlackRock will try to fill all of its SA seats for diverse candidates and minorities first and then consider other applicants.

Has anyone heard back who applied through the founders scholarship/diversity program?

Sep 3, 2019 - 3:38pm

I haven't either -- the recruiter literally doesn't respond to emails

Sep 3, 2019 - 4:37pm

I forgot to clarify. I mean has anyone heard back after the first round video chat? I had my hirevue and first round over skype.

Sep 3, 2019 - 11:16pm

Was contacted by a recruiter and applied August 1st for Founders Scholarship, I also know a senior director there and he referred me but I still haven't heard back. Messaged the recruiter on August 19th and she didn't get back to me. Has anyone heard back yet?

Just got this email for 2020 NYC Alternatives:

'Hi xxxxxxx,

Thank you for submitting your application to the position at BlackRock.

We are currently in the process of reviewing your application and we will be in contact with you shortly.

Just got SD for Alternative Specialists for the Founder's Scholarship program.


Sep 9, 2019 - 4:05pm

Today I got invited to a SD with Fundamental Active Equity Investing through the Founders Scholarship. Anyone else going to be at the NY interviews next Friday?

Sep 10, 2019 - 1:02pm

Is this the same as Equities? When was your interview? Would appreciate it if you could let us know.

Sep 12, 2019 - 8:01am

If you applied late August, you aren't being considered for the Founders Scholarship (BlackRock's diversity recruiting effort). I don't think they have even started interviewing regular candidates but someone can correct me if I am wrong.

Nov 7, 2019 - 11:29am

Yeah. I got an offer in Corp Strat + Dev.

The was for FT? How long after your superday did you hear back?

Sep 30, 2019 - 6:27pm

I missed a call from the recruiter earlier because I was in class. When I called her back she was already off work. Does anyone know if they're only calling successful candidates or everybody? Has anyone gotten a rejection yet?

Oct 10, 2019 - 4:20pm

It took me about a month to get my super day invite after my video interviews, so I think it really depends! I ended up getting an offer at the first NYC super day at the end of September, but I know they will continue recruiting until around Thanksgiving if they have the same schedule as last year.

Oct 10, 2019 - 4:04pm

I believe NYC still has room for PAG, and I know for a fact that the Atlanta is still very open in terms of positions. I accepted my offer in early September and was told that other interns would be rolling in until about the end of the year. However, Atlanta is mostly tech roles

Hi, just curious, do you know how many interns does the PAG team usually take? I did the hirevue last month.

Oct 11, 2019 - 10:39pm

PAG is one of BlackRock's smallest groups with only around 120 worldwide. There were only less than 20 people in pag in sf, and they had only 4-5 interns for PAG. can't speak about NYC, and I was told that 30-35 other interns would be joining me in atlanta, but I imagine only a small portion will be pag

Did you ever hear back from RQA? If so when and how were you contacted? I'm still waiting

Oct 29, 2019 - 12:12pm

From APAC here (Singapore/Hong Kong), has anyone heard back for their Real Assets team? I've applied about a month back for SA 2020 and still haven't heard back

Oct 29, 2019 - 10:29pm

I applied for the "Investments - Equities" and "Investments - Alts" teams in early August (NY office) and still haven't heard anything. Anyone else in the same boat / already heard back for these roles?

I applied in the same time frame but for different roles in NY and never heard anything

Oct 30, 2019 - 4:08pm

I think they are not that structured except for the Founder's round.

Got the equities interview by networking, and you should be prepared for the interviews because they are looking for no more than 5 interns in equities at most I would say. It's possible that they haven't filled their spots yet

Anyone superday'ing for global fixed income? IF anyone has already done it wondering if you could dm?

Nov 4, 2019 - 1:03am

It was honestly not what I was expecting. I got the impression that they had other candidates in mind. It was barely technical.

Nov 4, 2019 - 8:12am

Curious on what technicals they could ask? They aren't gonna make you sit down and do bond math no? Is it just like "What is a yield curve" type stuff?

anyone have their super day in ETF & Index Investing full time yet?

  • Prospect in AM - Equities
Nov 17, 2019 - 7:30pm

I think they're conducting their FT superdays soon - there's one in SF coming up this week, but not sure if it's for all of the teams within ETF & Index Investing (since there's multiple teams you could work for here)
