Finance Professional Opportunity Alert!

One of our Gonzaga students, Sharon Greer, has recently been hired as campus representative for the Bloomberg Aptitude Test (BAT) as a result of a connection she made during the New York Trek in September. As campus rep, she will be hosting two BAT sessions in the next few weeks. Sharon has asked the Career Center & GAMP to forward the information below so Gonzaga students will have information about taking the BAT at one of the two upcoming times she has arranged. The deadline to sign up for the tests is this coming Monday, November 17th, and students can register here: https://talentsearch.bloomberginstitute.com/test_sessions/available.

When: 6-8 p.m. on Nov. 20 in Jepson room 021 and from 6- 8 p.m. Dec. 4 in Jepson room 007.  

What is the BAT?
The BAT is a multiple choice test that evaluates your abilities 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 need to have a background in Finance in order to do well on the test. The BAT is offered FREE of charge on Gonzaga’s campus and you can also retake the test for FREE and only your best score will be visible to employers. Students of all degrees and all levels of study are invited to take the BAT as we offer a variety of internship and full time job opportunities.
