Posted Mar 19, 2018 - Requisition No. 66089

You’re the first of your friends to know about a major economic event. You have an appetite not only to see the world but to learn what makes it tick. You are fascinated by both finance and data and have a real passion for delivering exceptional client service.

If the above description sounds like you, come and join us for our Spring Externship and immerse yourself in all things Bloomberg. This is an amazing opportunity to participate in one of our signature early engagement and diversity recruiting initiatives and learn about our company culture, commitment to diversity and inclusion and Financial Products business.

The focus will be on our Analytics & Sales department, but you will be exposed to a wide array of topics, people and activities. You will cover everything - from financial instruments to Terminal functionality, leadership, networking skills and more!

You will learn from some of the best instructors in the industry and will learn how to apply this knowledge in a practical, dynamic business environment.
As you find out about our future graduate opportunities, you'll learn we host a Summer Internship every year and you will qualify for an interview if you successfully complete the Externship.

Our Team

On the Analytics Help Desk, our clients always come first. We provide round-the-clock support for Bloomberg Terminal users all over the world and across multiple industries. We interact directly with clients via our 'Instant Bloomberg' chat system, answering their questions and conducting training.

We’re a calm voice in a busy, volatile market. Our clients rely on us to help them make better, faster decisions using the power of the Bloomberg Terminal. On any given day we respond to over 12,000 queries in more than 15 languages. The variety of the problems we solve is incredible. One moment, we could be working with a Portfolio Manager who’s worried about risk. We show them how to use the Risk Analytics platform to find the most volatile securities in her holdings. The next - we may be chatting to a trader who needs help understanding the liquidity profile of two potential investments. We are teaching how to size them up against each other.

In Sales, we’re the face of Bloomberg for our clients. Equally consultative and entrepreneurial, we’re relied upon to manage existing client relationships, while being given the responsibility and autonomy to identify new business opportunities throughout North America.

We make regular visits to our clients to support and train them, discovering new business leads by making prospecting calls and networking. We work in a fast-paced, rapidly changing market and to be successful, it’s crucial we stay one step ahead, pre-empting our clients’ needs and presenting them with ground breaking solutions, before they even know they need them.

Colleagues across the company depend on us to communicate new functionality and Bloomberg offerings to the market. We demonstrate how Bloomberg solutions will help our clients make the best investment/trading/business decisions, making their day to day business smoother and more profitable.
