Bloomberg Skill Test

Time: Friday, April 11th, 2014

Location: ACB 126 (Computer Lab at CGU)

The Bloomberg Apititude Test is a multiple choice that elvuates your abilities as relative to a career in finance and then helps you to anonymously market yourself to over 20,000 employers via the Bloomberg Talent Search. All questions on the BAT evaluate apititude rather than knowledge so you don't have to have a background in finance in order to do well on the test.

As an added benefit this year, the Bloomberg Institute is providing all BAT test takers who complete the test a complimentary six month subscription to Bloomberg Briefs, Bloomberg's premium industry specific newsletter valued at $2,000 to the thousands of hedge fund managers and banker subscribers. Reading Bloomberg Briefs provides insight into the industry, helps you stay up to date on current events and enhances performance in interviews.

After taking the BAT, you will gain access to a premium pack that includes the daily Economics Brief and the daily Mergers Brief along with the weekly Private Equity and Hedge Fund Briefs.

Register for this (free) exam on the Bloomberg Institute's website.
