Bloomberg is coming to campus!
Still don’t have a summer internship or graduate job lined up?
Think you have what it takes to work in business or finance?
TEMPLE UNIVERSITY, ensuring the best education and job opportunities to its students, has partnered with Bloomberg to offer the Bloomberg Aptitude Test (BAT) FREE of charge on campus this semester! All questions on the BAT evaluate aptitude rather than knowledge. This means you do NOT have to have a background in Finance in order to do well on the test.

TO REGISTER FOR THIS FREE OPPORTUNITY
>>What is the BAT?
The BAT is a 2- hour multiple choice test designed to help you uncover your strengths and weaknesses as relative to a career in business or finance and then helps you to anonymously market yourself to 25K+ employers seeking a wide range of skill sets and experience for a variety of roles, including roles in Consultancy, Accounting, Insurance, Compliance, Research and Development, Investment Banking, Sales, HR, Trading, Marketing, Analytics and Global Data via the Bloomberg Talent Search.
In addition to providing access to traditional entry level schemes, the BAT also provides students an exclusive avenue to be recruited by Hedge Funds and small boutique financial firms that are normally very difficult to engage.
Don’t miss your opportunity to be contacted for interesting career opportunities from great employers worldwide
>> Bloomberg BRIEFS
After registering for the BAT, you will gain access to a premium pack of Bloomberg Briefs (Bloomberg’s industry specific newsletter) that includes the daily Economics Brief and the daily Mergers Brief along with the weekly Private Equity and Hedge Fund Briefs, normally valued at $2,000.
>> Please note you will only continue to receive this exclusive offer if you attend the session.
