Global Data Summer Internship with Bloomberg

Bloomberg LP- 2012 Global Data Summer Internship

Bloomberg LP, the global business and financial information and news leader, gives influential decision makers a critical edge by connecting them to a dynamic network of information, people and ideas. The company’s strength – delivering data, news and analytics through innovative technology, quickly and accurately – is at the core of the Bloomberg Professional service, which provides real time financial information to more than 300,000 subscribers globally.

Bloomberg is looking for motivated and passionate candidates to join our 2012 Global Data Summer Internship Program.  This is a twelve week internship where you will receive training across market sectors to help build a foundation of Bloomberg product knowledge, understanding their client base and networking with employees throughout the company.  Interns will be working as a Global Data Analyst in a specific sector for the summer.

As a Global Data Analyst, interns will work closely with many departments internally across the company including sales, news and research and development.

Externally, analysts work with clients to provide solutions to their inquiries and also build relationships with some of the most renowned names in finance.
