The Bloomberg Assessment Test (BAT) Coming to Campus

The Bloomberg Assessment Test (BAT) will be coming to campus on Saturday, September 29th.  Below you will find important information regarding the test and how you can use your results to further your career development: The goal of the BAT is to match student strengths with employer needs, so you do not need to be an expert on all sections of the test, however there is no negative scoring so it is best to answer all questions.

Bloomberg has relationships with over 20,000 global companies that now have access to use the test score data in their recruitment for full time and internship opportunities.  Taking the BAT cannot negatively impact your employment search and there is absolutely nothing to lose by participating in this opportunity.

After taking the test, you have the option to be anonymously entered into the Employer Talent Search Database, which employers use to search candidates to fill internship and entry-level positions. You can also choose to “opt-out” of the database if you wish. In addition, you can take the test to see where your strengths and weaknesses lie in order to gain valuable feedback regarding careers in business and finance.

All test results are anonymous so there is no chance of your identity being revealed alongside your scores and you maintain control over which employers you release your details to.  The test is comprised of eleven sections measuring Finance Knowledge/Aptitude and Career Skills: with topics such as Economics, Analytical Reasoning, Math, Investment Management and Verbal Skills.

We encourage you to use your BAT scores to enhance your resume and post this information on your social media profiles. Highlighting your participation in the Bloomberg Assessment Test (BAT) will set you apart from thousands of other candidates.  You can also mention the areas of the test that you performed well on during interviews to demonstrate and reinforce your abilities to employers.
