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.
>> Are you up for the challenge?

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.
