First rounds early fall I believe. What groups did you apply to? I did PEP and Alt-Solutions

Which business area was PEP under?

Jul 16, 2019

Alternatives, there's a follow up question

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"

Jul 16, 2019

Word from HR is that apps will be reviewed after the September deadline

Jul 17, 2019

Jul 23, 2019

Thx...London is blue though

Jul 29, 2019

How many questions was Hirevue? Was it the same across divisions?

Jul 29, 2019

2 questions and they were the same for both investment groups I applied to

Aug 4, 2019

were the questions behavioral? like very basic why BR? why this group? or more like tell me about a time you...

Aug 5, 2019

I'll just say that they're both behavioral. Simple, straightforward stuff.

Aug 5, 2019

Any of you boys have heard back with First Rounds?

Aug 8, 2019

Don't think first rounds start until fall- With general "how to do well in an interview" prep you can do the HireVue just fine

Aug 15, 2019

anyone here applied to Founder's Scholarship?

Aug 16, 2019

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

Aug 16, 2019

Some offices are staring to move now - got a first round interview email yesterday from SF.

Aug 16, 2019

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

Aug 16, 2019

Just got First Round for Alternatives NYC

Aug 17, 2019

when did you apply?

Aug 19, 2019

First day applications were live, not really remember

Aug 19, 2019

just had my first round with MAS group SF. It was all questions from my resume and some markets based questions. Also have fixed income sf interview tomorow

Aug 19, 2019

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

Aug 20, 2019

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

Aug 19, 2019

Can I PM you?

Aug 20, 2019

Sure!

Aug 20, 2019

Any non-diversity applicants hear back yet?

Aug 23, 2019

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

Aug 24, 2019

Did you get first rounds for both divisions you applied for?

Aug 21, 2019

how does the interviewing process work? are you given a heads up and few days to prepare?

Aug 28, 2019

A recruiter emailed me Monday morning to schedule my first round interview for Wednesday. I had a day.

Aug 22, 2019

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.

Sep 10, 2019

Yes, this is equities under investing. I had my first round on 08/26.

Sep 11, 2019

See you there! im in for global trending

Sep 11, 2019

Thanks for the info. I submitted the apps on 8/27 - will there be another round of interview?

Sep 12, 2019

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.

Sep 12, 2019

Thanks for the info - I did fill out yes for the Founder scholarship part in the app. That being said, will I still be considered in the regular round since Founder is not a separate application but embedded in 2020SA ?

Sep 12, 2019

Anyone applied to the FT program? If so, has anyone heard back since the hirevue?
