In a world where information matters, Bloomberg gives influential decision makers a competitive edge. Our core product is the Bloomberg Professional Service, or "the Terminal." Every single day, the Terminal powers more than 325,000 subscribers globally to move markets. But to keep connecting our clients to a dynamic network of news, people, and ideas, we need a constant flow of energy and innovation.
That's where you come in.
What's the role?
Bring your passion for the financial markets and help deliver custom and innovative solutions for the world's leading financial professionals. As an entry-level Financial Product Analytics & Sales Representative, you'll not only join a comprehensive training program -- but you'll start your career with Bloomberg.
In this role, you'll serve on the legendary Bloomberg Analytics Help Desk, which is an integral part of our offering. Our clients have come to rely on the knowledge, expertise, and exceptional service that our Analytics Representatives provide as they walk clients through new functionality and teach them how various enhancements can help in their day-to-day work. You'll also guide clients in better utilizing our existing functionality. On any given day, you'll:
- Construct a relative comparison sheet for a research analyst;
- Advise a portfolio manager on how to use our risk management tools;

As you develop these critical pieces of financial and product knowledge, you'll interact with clients every single day, taking their questions in real-time chats, on phone calls, and by teaching live client seminars. Such interactions with key players in the financial industry will improve your ability to manage client relationships and solve problems -- priming you for other career opportunities within the company.
Where can the role take me?
