I recently interviewed with Bloomberg for a 12 month internship in London.

For some context, I received an offer from another company a week ago and had a close deadline.
So because of this deadline, my onsite interview at Bloomberg was pulled back 2 weeks. I gave the onsite, did all of the questions properly (LC Easy-Meds) and started waiting for a feedback.

My deadline was approaching and when I emailed my recruiter again to give a feedback ASAP, I got sent a generic rejection email.
I arranged a call and was told that because they haven't started interviewing other cadidates (and make decisions in January) and because I had a deadline in the first week of December (which was already extended once), it was easier just to reject an intern 😑

Accepted the other company i.e JPMC
TC: £70k annually (intern)
YoE: 0

    TC for intern is an hourly rate. Update your stat accordingly. Bloomberg doesnt let any candidate pass who take any hint from interviewers. If you got any, even a small one, you get a reject

      Definitely not true, all of my team interview and this is not how it works, at all.
      (Heck, I think I got hints and I still got an offer)

      Definitely not true. Also not sure why Cisco alpaca is saying it's a bullet dodged. It's a great company to work for.

    £70k pounds as an intern at JPMC London? Base salary for new grads is usually £50K (Quants and Investment banking, the highest paying roles) at this company here . What is your role?

    Well, at least they didn’t waste your time, and btw, passing interview won’t guarantee an offer. There is a limited number of positions and usually companies interview more candidates and as soon as the position is filled, they reject other ones.

  • Wait so you think solving all problems will get you an offer every time? And how is a rejection email generic when it lists the exact reason you got rejected specific to your case?

    • Solving a problem correctly doesn't mean that you passed the interview. interviewers also look for communication and articulation.

      Interview is not the same as solving leetcode questions.

      Yeah, I mean including that I did well in the interview if I say so myself. Maybe there was something I overlooked, well it is whatever it is :)
