Bloomberg Assessment Test (BAT), take it or not?
Hi guys! I recently read an email about encouraging business and economics students to take the Bloomberg Assessment Test(BAT). I was wondering if it is worthwhile to take this test?
I am a junior student right now, so I hope it is worthwhile to take the extra time to take the exam. Also I don’t know if recruiters in financial services or investment banking field would take the exam score seriously.
I’m not sure how relevant the test is. A CFA & MBA are still the gold standard. I did read in some blogs that people received interviews after taking it. At the very least it may be a way to raise your visibility in this competitive landscape and every bit that you can be elevated doesn’t hurt.
NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!
