Enhance your employability prospects and connect with Bloomberg’s global network of financial employers


21 October 2013: Dublin Institute of Technology is partnering with Bloomberg L.P., the leading financial data and news provider, to offer the Bloomberg Aptitude Test (BAT)) completely free of charge on campus! Take the BAT this autumn to be put in touch with over 20,000 global employers! No preparation is necessary.


The BAT is a multiple choice test that evaluates your abilities as relative to a career in finance and then helps you to anonymously market yourself to over 20,000 employers via the Bloomberg Talent Search.  All questions on the BAT evaluate aptitude rather than knowledge so you do not have to have a background in Finance in order to do well on the test.

Over 100,000 students have taken the BAT in over 1,000 universities around the world and in the past six months over 21,000 students have been contacted by employers to discuss job opportunities. Employers using the Talent Search are 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.  Don’t miss your opportunity to be contacted for interesting career opportunities from great employers worldwide.

As an added benefit this year, Bloomberg is providing all BAT test-takers a complementary six month subscription to Bloomberg Briefs - Bloomberg's premium industry specific newsletter valued at $2,000 and used by tens of thousands of hedge fund managers, bankers and portfolio managers.  Reading Bloomberg Briefs provides insight into the industry, helps you stay up-to-date on current events and enhances performance in interviews. After taking the BAT, you will gain access to a premium pack that includes the daily Economics Brief and the daily Mergers Brief along with the weekly Private Equity and Hedge Fund Briefs.
